WORLD ARCHITECTURE / AND, THE WINNER IS...
Salesforce Tower at 1,070 feet is currently the tallest in San Francisco. It was recognized for its focus on occupant health, sustainability, structural efficiency and a significant level of integration with the surrounding human habitat, said CTBUH jury chair Karl Fender.
The building stands as the centerpiece of a new transit-oriented, mixed-use neighborhood recently freed up for development following the demolition of an aging transit center. The result is not just a contribution to the city skyline, but a highly successful exercise in human-centric and resilient design for tall buildings, added judges for the 17th annual CTBUH awards program.
