That's awesome news about 301 Mission! I can't wait to see that thing under construction. If SF gets that 850ft residential tower in the Transbay Terminal won't that be one of the tallest residential towers in the world? Do you think the SF should use this to push the tower's height and hopefully gain some acceptance? As of now the tower would stand as 3rd tallest completed residential tower in the world. But after the towers in Russia and Korea it would be around #5 which isn't bad for a city with such strict rules when it comes to height and such a vocal opposition to it as well. To put this into even more perspective, NYC has only 1 residential tower taller than this, and thats Trump World Tower at 861ft! GO SF!
"This will not be known as the Times Square of the West," City Council President Alex Padilla declared last week. "Times Square will be known as the L.A. Live of the East."

Will Rogers once said, "children in San Francisco are taught two things: love the Lord and hate Los Angeles."
