Beautiful tower, but what's with Pelli designing the same shape over and over?

I think the station is going to be glorious.

Does anyone know why most of the construction cams were removed?

Do we have any recent photos of the cladding installation?

Three levels of cladding now (one lower and two typical):

The top of the inner forms is at 705 feet. So, we have 1070-705=365 feet left.
Each floor is 15 feet, on average. So, take 365/15=24 floors. And measure that many floors from the Salesforce tower cam, and add that on top of the top of the inner forms.

Wow, no expense spared in the curtainwall with all that expressed exterior aluminum. Some close ups would be nice, thanks in advance to our local SF'ers. Not sure if the verticals are a super huge extrusion or made up from formed aluminum panel.

about 2 floors per week. i think the core is reduced at some point?

Looks as if Clark Construction is moving at about two floors per week.
It also appears that the work progresses at a pace of 24 hours a day.

I could swear that the core is smaller or reduced in size at some point.
Does anyone know?

Top of the forms is now around 720' from the looks of it

It only has 60 feet to go to beat 555 California...

and it's currently already the third tallest.

It looks like the base curtainwall will shift after this level (4) to the more 'glassy-less-aluminum' cladding:





Also, thanks for the pictures everyone!
