It actually looks surprisingly good from the perspective of coming in on the Bay Bridge, but analysized as a whole, I don’t think it fits together well and am not a big fan of it.

It is pretty weird, it looks like some tacky times square building or a Las Vegas hotel.

Seems like a pretty regular building. Care to expand on this extreme objection?

I think Park Tower masses well with it's neighbors, this is a fantastic group shot.

I’m just not a fan of the building’s design, especially with those balconies. The shape of the building looks odd.

Wow! Great photo. The skyline is getting more awesome every year but as I said, I don’t like this building. Hopefully someday by 2050, there is another building that is over 1k feet tall.

In 2050 the financial district will be completely submerged.

Goes without saying but, stupid gorgeous photo.

View from the Greyhound & Amtrack temporary bus station.

I like the reflection of the sky on the south side of the building. It looks like a giant key!

Beautifully lit crown on a handsome post-modern tower.

I don't mind it. It's not the best design in the world but it looks very Vancouverish which in my mind is a good thing.

In Vancouver, this would be about 50 ft short of being the tallest in the city while in San Francisco it just joins the crowd forming the "tabletop effect" at 600 ft from which at least 4 buildings now prominently extend skyward by as much as 400 ft. And I don't know of anything in that city which has a design quite as radical (whether you like it or not since I have made clear I mildly dislike it).

the whole thing just seems out of proportion and those have to be the least inviting-looking balconies in recent memory.... eesh SF.
