Indeed, and that little blue car in the middle is hilarious! That must be the new SF definition of eco transportation!

Yes, it seems as if it is. I wonder if the huge external skeleton sections are delayed coming from China or something. There's lots of activity on the site everyday, it's just hard to tell what they are doing.

Anyway, here's what you can see over the fence today:





An impressive display of crane teamwork on such a small footprint:

Today from the Salesforce cam:

This along with the above ground shots indicate the genuine above ground iron work may finally be underway.

So I was curious enough to get myself down there:







These cornerposts are just massive:





From a never-before-seen angle (between 2 buildings around the corner):

It's nice to see this one above ground now. I can't wait to see it rise into the skyline.

Latest Salesforce Construction Cam screen grab:



The vertical columns appear to be about 4 stories high so the building will jump upwards in 4-story segments it seems. But it appears the ironwork is proceeding in earnest.

I'm beginning to understand what seems to be taking so long: These lower floors are an amazing warren of steel:





A beam goes into place:



But the pace seems to be picking up.

2 weeks ago


Today 9/3/15

http://www.salesforcetower.com/cam

So I think it's pretty obvious there IS progress. I'm hoping the building will continue to progress skyward in 3-floor segments and once they get into a rhythm they can do one such segment every 2-3 weeks. If they can do it every 2 weeks they could have the building topped out in 36 weeks and meet the advertised schedule of completion in "early 2016" (which I interpret as the first half of the year).

It looks like they're going with a service core similar to 1 WTC...and that tower took forever to rise in the early stages.

Iron framework for the first 3 floors appears essentially complete. Looking forward to another 3 floors soon (beginning next week?):
