3D Model Shows Just How Dwarfed San Francisco’s Ferry Building Has Become

You can see it all in this photo of San Francisco’s Financial District and SoMA. Just how many structures rise above the Ferry Building these days?

It used to be the tallest in the City, back in the day.

See it, in the foreground at the foot of Market Street, in this model you can find at the SPUR Urban Center on Mission?

    Wow. Does anyone else see the HUGE flaw in the Hyatt building? As an architect, I fail to see how the builder of this model could take such an artistic license with that building. Very odd since the rest seem to be well detailed.

    Maybe a wall fell down off of it?

    Maybe the maker wanted to show off the terraced effect?

    But I get your point. Good catch
