  • Upon completion, this will be the tallest building in North America outside Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York City.
  • The design was selected from a competition comprising two other entries, one by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP at 1375 feet high, the other by the Richard Rogers Partnership at 1287 feet high.
  • The Pelli/Hines design best met the Transbay Joint Powers Authority's operational, functional, and aesthetic requirements. Hines' offer of a purchase price of $350,000,000 for the tower property was also significantly higher than the offers by the other teams.
  • Unlike the other proposals, the Hines' proposal is designed for 100% commercial office.
  • Soon after the announcement the proposal came under critcism that the plan was too conservative, provided no housing, and was more or less a copy of Two International Finance Centre in Hong Kong.
  • In 2008, the height restriction in the city was still 550 feet, so the Transbay Joint Powers Authority had to gain approval from the Planning Commission.
  • The structure features passive solar shading, geothermal cooling, high performance glazing, and wind power generated by four wind turbines.
  • Salesforce will lease the building's bottom 30 stories as well as the top two floors.
  • Salesforce Tower was topped out on Thursday, April 6, 2017.
