here it is.

all you do is find the URL for the picture by right clicking on the photo and click on properties. and then bracketing the url with [IMG] URL [/IMG]. You were really close.

thanks for the update.

Don't worry about the pics, it'll take a few tries to get the hang of it. Thanks for the update!

Yep, here goes, 25 floors up, I'm assuming around 400 feet:





I don't know how to get rid of the glare from the windows. Incidentally, you can also see my Vespa, her name's Gouda, parked on Beale, right underneath the bus lanes in the upper-middle, across the street from Beale Street Bar. I <3 Gouda.

You know, that is a surprisingly small-looking footprint for a project that consists of a 645-foot, 58 story tower with an 11-story accessory building.

great vantage point

what building are you in? 333 Market? I hope the new building does not block your view. Have you been over to 300 Spear? It makes the Mission Street project look like a child's sand box.

I sounded like they started pile-driving yesterday-- is that a new thing, or was it the first time I could hear it (from 1 Cali-- US Bank Building).

tech12, my cubicle is on the 25th floor, but my company takes up floors 25 thru 40, so i get to see that sucker rise all the way to the top! (if I'm still here, that is)

SFAttorney, I'm in 50 Fremont.

i think the pile driving is actually from the project behind the transbay terminal... i'm not actually sure what project it is.

and yes, the 301 Mission tower will block my views, but hey, who knows where I'll be in a couple years or so, eh?

I went through this thread and it appears only excavation occured in the site during 2005. Is that right? Has actual foundation work even started yet?

I don't think so. Last time I went by a few weeks ago it was a big mud pit.

The San Francisco Building and Construction Trades Council reports that American Piledriving and the members of Local 34 have begun driving pile.

It seems like this project is going rather slowly. All they've been doing is digging for the last 3 or 4 months.

That's surface parking South of Market. Of the surface lots in the area, most are crammed with cars in a similar fashion.
