Maybe in the 26th Century with the same proportions but a different exterior design and built two miles offshore from mainland San Francisco in the Pacific Ocean but the population still counted as part of the city. So let's assume that in the year 2555 there are two million people living in mainland San Francisco and one million in the tower, that would be three million people. That's roughly level Manhattan density over the entire present day land mass of San Francisco plus the density of the tower. I could base a science fiction series on something like this but the city by the bay would probably have to a plethora of hundred story plus buildings for centuries first before people could accept something like this.
