In the 12 years I have lived here, SF the skyline has been slowly evolving, adding more and more glass skyscrapers in the SoMa area. However, in the last few months with the completion of the Salesforce Tower that change has been brutal and very, very obvious.
The Salesforce tower is the second highest building in the west coast and is now visible from all of the traditional SF skyline view points. If we add to this that most of the work to remove the old bay bridge is now complete we will find that most existing skyline photos have become obsolete almost overnight.
Over the past few weeks I have been taking advantage of the clear weather to re-photograph many of these views and will be adding more over the coming months.
The samples below are taken from the Marin Headlands, Upper Market, and Alcatraz Island... I'm really looking forward to fog season to see how it will interact with the new downtown skyline!
