Most of the "old boring skyline" pre-dated Prop. M, especially including the tallest buildings on it (TransAmerica, Bank of America, 555 California and so on). Remember Prop. M was passed in 1986 and affects only office development. The wave of buildings from the 1960s and 1970s were before it and the condo towers on and near Rincon Hill or those near Yerba Buena, for example, weren't affected. It chiefly affected buuidings along Mission St. between 2nd and 1st and one or 2 in the old Financial District but it's hard to say these would have been taller or different without it and some are good architecture anyway such as 560 Mission.

Exclusive: Salesforce, WeWork in talks for big leases at Salesforce Tower
May 24, 2017, 2:18pm PDT Updated May 24, 2017, 2:29pm PDT

Reporter, San Francisco Business Times

Three major office leases are in the works at Salesforce Tower, potentially filling another 300,000 square feet in San Francisco's tallest building, according to four sources.

Anchor tenant Salesforce.com Inc. (NYSE: CRM) is in talks to expand by up to 200,000 square feet in its namesake tower. The cloud computing company already leased 714,000 square feet in 2014 in the city's largest office deal ever.

WeWork, San Francisco's largest co-working office provider, is in talks for a lease of around 100,000 square feet, sources said. It would be the company's 10th San Francisco location. There is also a third prospective tenant in talks to lease, which couldn't immediately be identified.

The 1.4-million-square-foot Salesforce Tower will be completed in late 2017, with tenant occupancy in early 2018. It is currently 69 percent leased, and the potential deals could bring it to 90 percent leased. Boston Properties (NYSE: BXP) owns 95 percent of the $1 billion tower. Hines owns 5 percent. Salesforce, WeWork, Boston Properties and Hines declined to comment . . . .

The building has "half a dozen active proposals from 200,000 square feet to a single floor, 25,000 square feet. The current discussions involve law firms, some tech firms, co-working firms, and assortment of small financial services organizations, private equity firms, D.C. firms and hedge funds," said Douglas Linde, president of Boston Properties, on an earnings call last month.

The tower currently has vacant space of 250,000 square feet in the 35 through 44th floors, and a second block of 170,000 square feet in floors 51 through 58.

Asking rents for the remaining space start at the high $80s per square foot, said Linde. Upper floor rents exceed $100 per square foot, said a source familiar with the building.

Sources said Boston Properties and Hines benefitted from starting construction in 2013, when labor and land costs were lower. That enables them to charge lower rents for equivalent space compared to nearby projects like Oceanwide Center and Park Tower. Those projects are facing a regional labor shortage.

Benioff announced today that the 61st floor of the building, the highest glass-walled floor of the structure beneath the translucent screened "cap," will not in fact be his personal office suite, but will instead be a gathering space they're calling the Ohana Floor — Benioff is fond of Hawaiian culture, and the word "ohana," which means family, is used at the company to represent the "family" of employees. During the day, the floor will be used as conference and event space for Salesforce employees and customers, and at night and presumably some weekends, the space will be opened up for use by community partners, non-profits, and others, free of charge.

As a reminder, Marc Benioff continues to generously contribute to his communities.

"Community partners, non-profits and others" probably doesn't include private parties in case anybody has a 12 year old boy anticipating his Bar-Mitzvah. But if you want to see the view, join the Opera Guild or become a donor of the AIDS Foundation or many similar groups and your odds may be good. Actually, I have been members of both groups and it doesn't take a lot of money, really. While I was active we had parties in places like the Opera House, GG Park's Conservatory of Flowers and Steinhart Aquarium (try getting tipsy making eye-to-eye contact with an alligator). Salesforce Tower now joins the list of options I'm sure.

^^That rather extreme curved effect near the top is not entirely due to the camera lens. I was down there this afternoon and almost took the same shot just because the curvature wowed me. It looks great.
