At 61 stories and 1,070 feet tall, with an outstanding design, it will have a transformative impact on the San Francisco skyline. Salesforce Tower is a reflection of our mutual confidence in the City of San Francisco and the South Financial submarket as a home to successful companies that seek to employ today’s highly educated and highly motivated worker. Salesforce.com’s commitment further demonstrates the desirability of high-quality, well designed first class office space to today’s premier technology companies.”
