Wow that's a lot of steel. I think I saw this one when I was in SF a few weeks ago.

Nice photos. Still looks like slow progress. They say it be finished by the fall of 2016. Still wonder if that will happen.

Not slow now. It's springing higher. Seems like they've added about 4 floors in a little over a week. This is what was expected. The foundation and first couple of floors that anchor the building and bear its entire weight are what take time:



Compare with the photo on Oct 7. Look at the white part of the crane. It looks to me as much as 5 floors higher by that measure: At the bottom edge of the white section on Oct 7, about 3 floors higher the the top edge of that section now.

Nice to see this one rising above grade. Is it me or does it seem like it's taken a long time?

They say it will be finished by the fall of next year. Wonder if that is still going to happen.

Yes.

Look at it today:

Looks like 10 or 11 floors to me. That would be about 3 floors in the last 10 days. Again, here's Oct 23:



Compare to the white section of the crane.

They say it will be completed by the end of next year. I wonder with construction at this rate, will it be completed on time.

Check This Very Important and Great Photo Out Everyone , Please,
a Great Photo like this Says " a Thousand Words " and a
Special Thanks to PargeethSL, Our SSC Friendly Family Friend and also one of My SSC Friend's , Fantastic Job,
it really says a lot, Just Look again and again ALL Our SSC Friendly Family Friends , Brothers, and Sisters !!
the thousands words are, " WOW How Many Towers are under construction ?? " Wow, maybe a Thousand Words
I Love San Francisco, and This is Great of all the Construction of these Taller Towers in the Near Future, But I'm kind of worried about the 110th Anniversary Next Year 2016 of I don't want to say, it's just too scary if it ever Happens again like back then in 1906,
But don't listen to me, I'm Old , Wild and Crazy, and " a little Excited " just ask Jasonhouse, He knows me !
