More like six years! Had to be the best tested soil in the city.

Salesforce Tower Website
 
Don't recall the tower's website being posted here yet.

Look's like it has some new views as well as some renderings w/ signage.

It's like a modern chase tower! I like it

Skyguy_7 Mar 13, 2019 1:14 AM

Not too bad. The crown is a great compliment to the Mart.

Great link! Also note the PDF's of the floor plans (~25K rsqft) and the stack (which actually shows 58 floors, including 2 mechanical).

Unfortunately it will not even really peak from the planetarium view, but it still adds some canyoning to the river (even if it takes up a VERY prime spot).

Wow... that thing will be roughly 4 times as big as WPW! Much larger than I thought. Clever of them to use so many beautiful, exposed support columns to increase all along the river/base to increase its the square footage at the office space level. Coolio

Imposing.

We're so spoiled to be complaining certain elements of this tower(and rightfully so to a degree). Even NYC would love an office building with that quality of a curtain-wall. Still hoping we see another supertall office building at some point in my life though.

Resembles 110 Wacker a little....Not a 1000 footer but OK fits in well with the surrounding developments.

Its a miracle! SQUARED OFF COLUMNS

AMWChicago Mar 13, 2019 6:01 AM

Wow! From the first rendering on the Saleforce website it looks WAY taller than 300 N LaSalle. Could that mean that 950' is still in the ballpark??? :D

I don't mean to bring up this debate again, but this image makes it look WELL over 800 ft...

Also found this cool diagram placing the floor count at 59, which again confuses me as to how daunting the height looks in that other picture lol

Hate burst your bubble but this one of the early/original pics when it was suppose to be 900+
:runaway:

Haha. Dammit. Yeah, I figured it was either outdated or a part of the marketing gimmick to sell the building to tenets. The pic posted by Steely earlier looks more on par with what we're expecting. This one just looked way too tall lol. Worth throwing this out here though. Still a lovely building and will fill the 'Y' out very nicely with 150 Riverside, 444 Lake, 110 Wacker, and 300 N LaSalle all around its height.

Their siting map locates the nearby transit stations weirdly. Putting Ogilvy on Clinton instead of Canal is weird. Putting the Clark entrance for Clark/Lake at Clark I guess makes sense, but since there's an exit/entrance at Wells/Clark, two full blocks closer, you'd think they'd want to indicate that as it makes transit look considerably closer. Oh well, it's pretty rare that I see these maps and don't think they could be dramatically improved, lol.

Skyguy_7 Mar 13, 2019 12:06 PM

^I noticed that too. It’s likely because a couple millennial Californians designed the map.

That is indeed a miracle if so!

Now imagine if they reengineered the columns to create a series of squared off Y’s, as an ode to the confluence. :slob:

YYYYY

Squared columns to hide the ugly round poured in place concrete underneath!

Yes 1000%

God is in the details

Zapatan Mar 13, 2019 3:26 PM

This is so exciting, I've grown to really like this building. It's simple yet gorgeous

Beautiful tower!

Reminds me of a taller, modern, updated version of the Embaracadero Center in SF:
