Huge erection planned for SOMA
Part of the plans to someday build a CalTrain and bullet train station at a rebuilt Transbay Terminal is a ginormous office tower that would make the project profitable for the developer. Today the Transbay Joint Powers Authority and its designers have released plans for a tower which resembles a vibrator with an electric-shaver head, and at its base a decorative merkin of green trees.
I think they’re trees.
The tower would dwarf the city’s tallest buildings, including the Transamerica Pyramid and the One Rincon building at the base of the Bay Bridge, recently topped off.
