I love the massing of the proposed tower.
I do travel quite frequently and off the top of my head, Dubai, Shangahi, NY ect.. But everyone is entitled to their opinion. I also like the cluster and from the street view, it will look more urban.

Definitely. I'm thinking that maybe the total height of the building is the 400 foot tower + the 85 foot podium, which would come out to 485 feet. That seems to fit for 44 stories plus a crown...but the height limit there is only 400 feet (plus another 100 for a crown/spire). I wonder what the deal is with that.

lol seriously. Maybe the skythelimit lives in an alternate universe where every highrise is a supertall.

There is a world outside of SF and other cities, Shangahi, Beijing, Jeddah are doing some interesting stuff with height and design. So, as I travel Internatinal at least six times a year to these and other cities, they are impressive. No alternate universe. Born, raised and live in SF.
