I like it a lot because it has this moody kinda feel to it, iono.

I think it fits perfectly with the skyline

I like it a lot. My best friend has a homeless brother who slept in the basement of this building and got kicked out by a security guard.

The BA Tower, along with the Transamerica is one of the most iconic skyscrapers in SF. I find it impressive though I still look at The Transamerica as SF's landmark scraper

its so-so. Not anything special design-wise, but with SF's skyline it has an impact, and I can't imagine SF without it...

It's overshadowed by the TA.
