They should make this a super tall. Its design warrants the extra height. In other words, it would look good even taller.

Can't. Here is the adopted height limit zoning map--this site (Parcel F) is zoned for 750 ft so I'm not even sure how it can be approved at 800 ft but the height is to the roof, not the top of unoccupied ornamental elements and also they use floor area ratios and other considerations to fudge a bit sometimes though not to the extent of alllowing any building other than the Saleforce to exceed 1000 ft). Incidentally, the limit on the Salesforce is 1000 ft but, again, that's to the roof not the top of the crown. Generally these limits are most often set based on shaddow studies--a city ordinance bars significant shaddowing of public open spaces, in the case of Salesforce Justin Herman Plaza on the Embarcadero. I'm not sure exactly what the studies showed for Parcel F.

Any news about Parcel F?

I'm excited to see what tweaks are made to this one as I was already digging the earlier renderings.

Reminds me of Aon tower in Chicago, SF could use something like that. I like it.

Don't be shocked if this project has to wait for the next housing cycle. Rents and condo prices in SF are definitely falling. Seems like 2015 or early 2016 was the peak.

Developers are becoming hesitant to build new SF projects now because they can't reliably predict rents or selling prices upon completion and are looking to markets that are still appreciating rapidly. Barring a national financial crisis of some sort, I expect the next down cycle to be fairly shallow and brief but still I don't think this project will get started for 2 or 3 years at best.

Hopefully we'll get an update early in the new year:

Two massive Transbay towers will complete puzzle

Hines and Urban Pacific Development are fine tuning the details of both sites to win city approval of two sites, which are known as Parcel F and Block 4, that will include housing, office, hotel and retail space. Parcel F is at 550 Howard St. while Block 4 is on Howard Street between Beale and Main streets.

[...]

The site makes up an irregular-shaped lot that abuts the future bus ramp flowing into the transit center.

The developers expect the Parcel F proposal to go before the Board of Supervisors for approval early next year.
