The Ones That Made It

Urban design dude John King has a lengthy discussion of the four high-rises that have managed to make it through the obstacle course that is San Francisco's development scene: the lonely One Rincon Hill, the two Infinity towers, and Millennium Tower. Altogether, he says, they make an uneven redefinition of the skyline, with each its own pros and cons, but that is indeed how the cookie crumbles. Case in point: the Twinfinities, meant to allow the sky to "flow around the buildings," often instead "blur into a wall. Two sinuous forms become one broad slab." Oh well. [SF Gate]
