Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects - Salesforce Tower SF


 61 floors, reaching 1,070 ft (326 m)

I have been photographing the rapidly changing urban landscape around the Transbay Terminal in San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood since the demolition of the original Timothy Pfluger designed edifice. Below is a brief selection of images chronicling the rise of the Salesforce Tower which stands on Mission St. between First and Fremont Streets.

The topped-out Salesforce Tower has a commanding presence on the San Francisco skyline, dwarfing the BofA building and the Transamerica Pyramid. 4-12-2017 from near Land's End.
