Even though it's still under construction, it has been dominating the San Francisco skyline for quite some time. The tower at Mission and 1st streets has been under construction for four years.
It is 61 stories high and the developer, Boston Properties, says the building opening will be rolled out in phases starting in July through next year.
"The steels been finished, concrete finished, the skin of the building is coming up. In terms of later phases of construction, the building needs to be fit out for its tenants. So, each tenant that comes in, its space is going to be designed and constructed for its particular uses," Boston Properties spokesperson Michael Cantalupa said.
