According to the skyscraperpage forums, cladding installation has begun. Anyone got pics?

Hard to say--it looks like a test but it's time they started (both in the sense that it's the stage of construction when most buildings seem to start and they are due to finish the building in 9 months so time to get going).

Most likely a test but it looks good so they may ramp up installation.

It could also be the final one, since they're removing the blue netting step by step to make room for the cladding. Which floor are they working on btw?

Just counting them, looks like around floor 34.

Here's a shot from the Salesforce Tower construction cam right now:

I count they are on the 31st floor.

Now looks like more than a test.

Website is up, with some awesome new renders (and a rotatable 360 photo of the views)!

And the information that "181 Fremont's steel is up to the 35th floor as of today and the exterior glass curtain wall is now on two lower floors".

Have we had any indication whether that bar/restaurant will be open to the public or for tenants only? That should be one of the most spectacular watering holes in the city (certainly since the closure of the Carnelian Room.)

Yeah, a little. This building will just not be as tall as that building.

Really? Town Hall is a restaurant in spite of the name--must be a place for diners to stash their kiddies while they eat (a great idea I wish a lot of restaurants would emulate if true).

Anyway, I drove across the Bay Bridge into town on April 30 and was pleased to see the skeleton of this building already showing nicely on the skyline. From that direction it sits in what was a sort of a dip or valley in the skyline between highrises along Market and Mission Sts and on Rincon Hill so it's nicely visible even at "only" 35 floors. Was alone in heavy traffic so I couldn't snap a shot, though.

Finally, I personally like this new trend toward glass skin panels "overlapping" like fish scales. I think it gives a nice texture.

From a block away you can really see how it tapers now:



They are up to the top of the office section--above this are a floor or 2 of residential amenities and then the residential (condo) floors. Externally, there is a visible transition (see renderings) that is somewhat more complex like the base and may take slightly longer to assemble.

And the glass area is growing:
