SF Tower looking good in these amazing SF aerial photos by Louis Raphael on Flickr - it is worth checking out the entire album, but here is one to whet your appetite:

Raphael takes some epic aerials. He's kinda like Vincent Laforet in that respect which is another photographer I'd recommend. His aerials of SF, Vegas, NYC, and London at night are really good.

Some examples:

Wow! Thanks Botoxic. Great shot of all three projects. Such and exciting time to see SF Tower and 181 going vertical together.

Great picture, botoxic!

We need that live construction cam set up in your friends condo... :)

Great to see you out of the ground at long last SF Tower. You know this must be one of the fewest floors (60 flrs) to reach supertall status (1,000 ft +)

Its an elegant design will look fantastic. Yes, this one and Comcast in Philly 59 floors is a low floor count.

Norman Foster explains the desire for the high ceilings that lead to such a low floor count in this video of his presentation of Comcast Tower 2. He references how "loft spaces are where good work happens" even referencing Steve Jobs' garage as a loft. Although I don't know if his Apple Spaceship design has loft-like offices too.

Bah. I wish people didn't believe the garage story so much. They developed the Apple I at a regular work station. The garage was just a makeshift assembly plant for a short time for the first orders, until the company moved to a regular office for the remaining 40 years of its existence. Comparing SF's tallest and most luxurious office skyscraper to a typical American ranch style garage is a bit of a stretch of the imagination.

Those are some serious rebar cages. Looks like the core walls could be 4 feet thick.

haha interesting, but you know, when reality runs up against the myth, go with the myth every time.

i don't think they are making a direct office tower-suburban garage comparison, they just trying to bs up the loft style spaces as being ideal creative spaces for business. if anything blame the artsy fartsy 1970s-80s redevelopment of soho for the ridiculously never ending 'creative loft' fad.

That being said, where would you rather work? Your boring bland office or a lofty looking area, I mean to me it feels like less of a prison cage. But that's just me I suppose lol

This reminds me of the 4' thick cages they have used for the Wilshire Grands core. I assume the core will be 20 or more floors ahead of the steel at some point.
