Salesforce Tower claimed the tallest building title in San Francisco from the former holder, Transamerica Pyramid.
The Transbay District development hit 867 feet in height, and is eventually planned to reach 1,070 feet, while the Transamerica Pyramid stands at 853 feet tall. The top 150 feet of the tower will feature the highest public art light installation in the U.S.
Boston Properties’ and Hines’ 61-story Salesforce Tower occupies a full city block, and marks the new center of San Francisco. Construction on the 1.4-million-square-foot project began in 2013 and is expected to be delivered in Q4 2017.
Hines’ Paul Paradis says, “Seeing this complex project reach a major milestone in the San Francisco skyline is a proud moment for our team.”
The architectural team is led by design architect, Pelli Clarke Pelli and architect of record, Kendall Heaton.
