I agree, and in this case am glad this mediocre building isn't any bigger or taller.

^Agree 110%, this thing is not worthy of the west coast's financial district.

^^I think the point is that if it were better proportioned--this isn't about height per se--it would be more attractive. I'm no fan of the glazing either but all I can say is it could and should have been better (i.e looking less "1970s"). But this is Heller Manus for you as I recall--same guy who did 181 Fremont. Wow.

Considering it is the only thing they have allowed to be built for ~30 years north of Market, I am extremely happy with how this turned out. It is a mid-block mid-rise and it doesn't have to be anything more than that. I just hope it gives developers confidence to build more new buildings in the area.

It looks like the cladding is mostly done on this one.

It actually looks pretty decent from the east side, with a nice transition of stone and glass:

Exclusive: Two big leases could fill up another new S.F. office tower before it opens
By Roland Li – Reporter, San Francisco Business Times

Another new San Francisco office tower, the North Financial District's 350 Bush St., is close to filling up before it opens.

Software maker Atlassian Corp. Plc (NASDAQ: TEAM) is close to leasing 125,000 square feet at the tower. In a separate deal, the advertising company Publicis is close to leasing 67,000 square feet, according to two sources familiar with the property.

The deals are still pending and would account for all the remaining space in 350 Bush St., which totals 372,000 square feet. Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN)'s Twitch division, which broadcasts video game video streams, leased about half of the building in 2015.

The deals would be another sign of strength for San Francisco's office market and remove its eighth-largest availability. The city has few new large blocks of space, with another disappearing after Facebook Inc.'s blockbuster 436,000-square-foot lease at Jay Paul Co.'s 181 Fremont. The 1.4 million-square-foot Salesforce Tower, the city's largest new office building, has leased or is in talks to lease about 90 percent of its space.

Two new buildings, Park Tower at 250 Howard St. and the Exchange at 1800 Owens St., have no new tenants and are set to open within the year. Oceanwide Center, which won't finish until 2021, is also seeking tenants for 1 million square feet of office space. The Shipyard also is approved for 4.3 million square feet in multiple buildings, but will take years longer to build . . . .
https://www.bizjournals.com/sanfranc...073&j=78910791

Some folks here have expressed concern that there may not be enough demand for, for example, Oceanwide Center's office component. The BizTimes doesn't seem to share the concern.

^ I don't remember anybody ever saying there may not be enough "demand" but that it is a good sign that new office towers are leasing up because it means that there is enough demand.

We expressed exactly the opposite and I tried to explain it twice, perplexing me as to why you continue to not understand that.

the extension of St Mary's Square is open. raised plantings on one side; otherwise mostly empty. an art piece commemorating the 'comfort women' of WWII has been installed in one corner.

the north side of 350 Bush



and the north entrance



I forgot to go over and look at the Mining Exchange entrance
