SAN FRANCISCO | Salesforce Tower | 1,070 FT (326 M) | 60 floors



415 Mission Street, San Francisco, California, USA

Architect: Pelli Clarke Pelli
Developer: Boston Properties Hines
Area: 1.35 million sq. ft.
Use: Office



Construction Camera

Image copyright: Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects

From the architect:
"The tower takes the timeless form of the obelisk and has a slender, tapering silhouette. The walls are composed of clear glass with pearlescent white, metal accents. These horizontal and vertical accents gradually taper in depth to accentuate the curved glass corners. The walls rise past the top floor to form a transparent crown that appears to dissolve into the sky. Carved into the tower top is a vertical facet that will be lit at night. Like the transit center, the design for the tower emphasizes sustainability and has a LEED Gold objective."

so for about 2 years, we'll have simultaneous construction on four separate sites, in addition to the new terminal itself - this supertall, 181 freemont, crescent heights' 524 howard, and tishman's rounding out the (irritatingly lowrise) foundry square development. now we're talking.

That's going to produce some interesting skyline views looking down Columbus Avenue with it being so close to the Transamerica Pyramid from that angle.

It might peek out somewhere walking through FiDi being so tall. This is going to be epic. Bye, bye Seattle and Boston: hello Chicago and NYC.

This will be the first building in San Francisco to soar over 1,000 feet. Celebration time .

Thanks for splitting the thread on this planned tower and the under-construction adjacent terminal!

Nice to see a new/separate thread for this tower! Next summer can't come soon enough...especially since the queen of the NIMBYs (Sue Hestor) has finally managed to put the tower on her radar of "evil skyscrapers that must be stopped at all costs". Though I have a feeling she'll be powerless on this occasion, thankfully.

Here are some older renders that have a somewhat different design, but which are at the correct height of 1,070 feet, so they give an idea of what it would look like on the skyline:

And here's another render showing what it would look like from the bay/across the bay to the southeast (which happens to be one of my favorite angles of SF's skyline), along with the proposed Mission Rock development:

More cities around the country need to at least have one or two supertalls on average. Especially major cities like San Fran and Miami.

Miami will have One Bayfront Plaza which would be 1,010 feet tall, but I don't like the current design. The old one was better.

Aside from SF, LA and Miami have future potential supertalls.

If Chicago's wolf point tower gains a bit of height somehow it could too.

Which would make for 4 new supertalls outside NY

Anyway SF truly deserves this building!

It's not always about demand. Height limits play a part too, of course. SF had/has the demand, and would have had at least one supertall built decades ago if not for height limits (the Transamerica pyramid, at it's original proposed height of 1,150').

Fun fact: The Pyramid was the 5th tallest building in the world upon completion in 1972.

Yeah, I guess even at the reduced height, it still basically qualified as a "supertall" of the time.
