I really like this building. I hope they're not about to muck it up.
^It looks like a kid's toy box. It's gimmicky. The colors and random patterning are garish. In five years, it's gonna look ridiculously dated.

But hey, that's just me.
Well, now that I've seen this building in person, I've got to say that I find it to be hideously ugly. Really awful.
Here's an update from Maxine Clark: "We have about 50 percent of the building leased – all letters of intent. We’ve done the legwork, but there’s still much to be completed. The building is going to be a $90 million project and we are funding it with a combination of debt, tax credits and private do...

Interesting to note that several shuttle buses taking employees from San Francisco to Apple and Google headquarters in Silicon Valley have been attacked in transit. Perhaps it's time for these companies to start looking for more welcoming cities. http://mashable.com/2018/01/17/apple-shuttle-attacks/...
^Yeah, that's what we're talking about. I think I caused some confusion by tacking it onto this thread rather than starting a new one.
Hmmmmm...Apple is planning a 2nd campus (devoted to customer support) and 20,000 new hires in the next 5 years.

^Yep; definitely two cranes. There had been a photo on the Art Museum Expansion thread, but it's not there anymore.
^Yep. Art Hill will be awesome. I was disappointed when they first built the wall around the terrace, but now I see how it draws people out to the edge, where they really get the full view.

When driving northbound Hanley you can see the core and crane rising from the top of the hill as you're passing the new Porsche dealership. With the right lens it would make for a cool picture.
We've got to get you the right lens. 8) :D
