We have had and continue to have San Francisco threads with incorrect floor numbers and/or height measurements. I've requested numerous times that some of them be amended, most often to no avail.

Updated to 61 floors.

Just PM me if you need anything. It's hard for me to check in on and read all threads.

Great pictures by the way! This tower is turning out great!

Fellow forumers,

I don't have time to read these threads like I used to, so do me a favor and would everyone weigh in on the correct floor count, as per SSP convention?

Wow, I agree! I'm heading south for 31 days in Central and South America, so will be able to see its cousin in Chile, and look forward to seeing the further progress here when I return in January.

This made me laugh. I was on travel for 15 days and my favorite part about coming home was seeing Salesforce Tower pop up out of nowhere in the skyline.

^^^^ This picture clearly shows that the Salesforce tower is not going to be a mere clone. Because a tower has a similar shape as another doesn't mean it's an unimportant knockoff. How many skyscrapers are really true originals. Transamerica Pyramid maybe one off but these are rare.

I agree--there are significant differences between the two, more like distant cousins. Gran Torre is also not quite as tall as Salesforce Tower in any of its dimensions. It does have a two floor observation deck!

Thank you Justbuildit for posting it.

The only ones complaining this is a "knockoff" are LA forumers. Move along, nothing to see here.

Most architects - just like most artists - tend to take inspiration from other things they have seen. It should then be no surprise that some buildings tend to look like others. I don't think this takes away from any building at all though.

One Liberty Place in Philadelphia - a very iconic building - took inspiration from the Chrysler Building.

Except it would be the other way around since the Devon Energy Center came after.

Exactly--look at how the Romans copied ancient Greece time and time again. Washington, D.C. has many buildings and monuments that were inspired by ancient Rome. The pattern has continued since the dawn of humanity.

Hey, nice update folks!
I've never been to the west coast, so I don't know the difference in air quality (I've heard it's pretty bad in LA, so I have no clue how you folks breathe).

Here on the east coast, it's not bad.
There is a very smelly factory in North Jersey that pollutes the air so bad, I have to shut the windows as I travel to NYC.

But the tower is looking very nice.
It's refreshing to know that it doesn't need a spire to reach the sky.

Enjoy your tower!!
