What a remarkable building. Jealous of y'all over in SF. Can't wait to see these developments in person.

Does this photo give us an idea of what Saleforce tower will look like at night when it is all completed and lit up?

I took a drive into SF for the first time in several years and I was blown away. I was so excited to finally be seeing it in person. I'm glad I no longer have to drive 345 miles to LA to see a super tall anymore. It's just an hour and a half drive now.

This shot provides a good look down towards the subterranean excavation along Fremont Street.

25,000 twinkling LED lights come to life lighting up the night in the Best City Ever. Artist Leo Villareal threw the switch and the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge glowed and shimmered against a rainy night sky. The art project on the bridge is slated to last two years, but many want it to be a permanent attraction.
Since it has been more than 2 years, I guess it's (semi)-permanent.

The original bulbs were taken down after two years and replaced with permanent ones.

According to wikipeida, after the initial installation, there was a funding campaign to make it permanent, which ultimately succeeded. Maintenance and electricity is funded up to $250K per year and is paid by bridge tolls.

I really like the X patterns in the crown. I hope it's still visible at night when they build the exterior. The LED light fixture would look awesome going diagonally in contrast with the single vertical lines on each side of the exterior crown.

Probably the best building west of the Mississippi. Perfect fit in SF's skyline too. Classic, timeless appearance.

Those lights... they're truly remarkable. Every city on this caliber should be that well lit.

Any predictions for when the next building as tall as Salesforce will get built in SF? It took 45 years to build one taller than Transamerica.
