I had the distinct pleasure of being invited to the “topping off ceremony” at One Rincon Hill this morning. There were quite a few notables in attendance, including Mr. Willie Brown (da mayor), the architects, and a few others, which I’ll note next week when I revise this post. For now, I thought you’d enjoy some pictures and video of the inside, outside, views, and elevator ride to the 59th, and 41st floors. Enjoy…The views were INSANE! (Click the thumbnails for larger images.)
Going up One Rincon Hill construction elevator with Willie Brown in the house!
Getting to the top of the elevator on the 59th floor…white knuckled
What goes up, must come down…and finally figured out the best shot.
These are undoubtedly some of the first images you are seeing of this, so please if you take them, claim your source, and link back to here.
Lots more unobstructed view pics to come next week, as well as descriptions of these pictures. For now…I have to get out of town. Thanks for checking them out. Oh…that is Julie with the hat, which is now in the time capsule.
p.s. Apologies for the raw video…
