Oh My Gawd, can we just stop with this conversation. Every few weeks some troll pops in, bitches about it not being "supertall" and then the next 3 pages turn into a back and forth on it. Can we in LA just vote the Salesforce taller so the SF can feel special? They seem to NEED the title so much more than LA. And we can just go two one of our TWO skydecks, have a drink, and wait for the next thing that they want to complain about.

It is simply extremely upsetting that our tower that is supposed to be the tallest building on the West coast looks shorter than the one in SF and even looks shorter than the US Bank tower next to it. I am sure they got something from the city in exchange for building the tallest tower in the West.

On the contrary, they had no idea they were going to be the tallest in the west until after construction began, lol.

...It's not about being the tallest or the smallest or whatever..
What are the facts?..
1.WGC looks ridiculous with its nasty pole and,more generaly,is kinda designed like Kim Kardashian(short and broad)
2.USBT is still the king
3.Saleforce is magnificent.
...all the rest is bullshit!

Regardless of the height.. it's a tower, and from almost all angles a really nice looking one (don't really like the flat back xD). It is not that tall but still has its impact on the skyline without unbalancing it too much. I'll take it xD.

Here's an article in LA Times about the current crazy development in LA:

Could be; but now you are taking the "big d#ck contest" bait again. You want to win a big d#ck contest which doesn't even measure d#cks.

Really, if this is your thing stick to measurements that can't be messed with at anybody's whim.

Sadly this is a measuring contest that only SF cares about. LA isn't competing with SF, by skyline or anything else. We cant go more than three pages without Salesforce coming up...why is that if not insecurity?
They have a lovely tower, we have a lovely tower...that's it. If we cant just be happy for each other, then stay on the threads that make you happy and leave us to our peace and private.

But moving on. Awesome new picks. Hopefully in the next few months, we'll see the lighting scheme for the crown and rest of the tower.

Looking at skyline pics of LA, it's very obvious to all which is the tallest tower, and it ain't this one.

What does it have to do with SF? I drive by this tower every day and feel sorry that it is not in fact taller than US Bank tower. I would love to have a truly tallest building on the West coast here in LA.

You do. If you want to count architectural then it goes to WG. If you want to go up to roof height then you have the US bank tower(which has a roof higher than SF). Salesforce doesn't win on any category.
