A few weeks back I noticed a discoloration on some of the North side panels that appears to have been washed away when we had rain. I am hoping the same will happen again next time we have a good shower.

"A frightening moment for many San Francisco residents as a slumping crane rests on the metalwork around the Salesforce tower on Friday.

"The Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) was called out to the building Thursday as the crane was being dismantled. Officials are calling the slump a rooftop mounted derrick.

"According to Cal/OSHA during the dismantling process, the cranes boom ended up slumping and came to a rest on the ornamental metal outside the building.

"The building was not damaged and there were no injuries."

Fallen Crane - View of the West Side

pseudolus - thanks for the news.

Here is a view of the "slumped" crane from my apartment in the Civic Center (telephoto lens) on Saturday 09/30/17.

^Technically, with the crane up there like that, this is now the tallest building on the west coast

^Enjoy it while it lasts!

I'll be in San Francisco in December -- I'm looking forward to seeing the completed SF tower in person.

Didn't someone a couple months back express concern that 33 Tehama would obscure the view of the Salesforce Tower? 🤣 To all those critics complaining that this tower is too similar to others I would say while it's not ground breaking it surpasses those in it's elegant simplicity. I've been a fan of Pelli's work since his PDC "Blue Whale." He's unquestionably one of the masters of the modern glass facade.

^If I recall correctly, the concern was 33 Tehama blocking the view of Salesforce from the Fremont Street off-ramp.

I saw the Salesforce Tower in an ad yesterday. The San Francisco skyline (as well as the Los Angeles skyline) are common backdrops for advertisements, but yesterday I saw one with SF that featured the Salesforce Tower. I admit I had to do a double take, as I was so used to seeing ads with the Transamerica Pyramid in the background.

They seem to be simulating the outside latticework in the lobby?

Anyone else bothered by how small and short the lobby turned out to be?

Wait until it and the plaza are done. The rooftop park connection is going to be another feature. I'm personally thinking it looks good, liking the way it sweeps across the north side of the building.

No. Lobbies are wasted space in a building like this unless they do what some do and call part of the lobby their required "publicly accessible private open space".

Have you seen the lobby of the Empire State Building? For years the ESB was the epitome of a skyscraper and its entrance and lobby while nice is not particularly grand.

Got to see this tower last month and was really impressed with it. It really dominates the skyline from many different angles.
















Does anyone know what this is going to be?





Pictures by me.

^^^JUST WOW!!! Almost criminal that they have to cover up those spaces with the lattice work. And once again this bolsters the case to have a true world class observatory atop a future SF supertall. Thanks for posting Fimiak!
