Glass Curtain Rises On Tower

This week crews poured the 60th and last residential floor at One Rincon, the condominium atop San Francisco's Rincon Hill.

In about a month, the building will be topped off at 605 feet.

At the end of the week, the building stood 587 feet, 8 inches above First and Harrison streets. It is taller than the Washington Monument and, like it or not, One Rincon is already a San Francisco landmark.

One Rincon still has an incomplete look about it. The cement core of the building is exposed at the top, and the glass exterior reaches up to the 50th floor, 482 feet above the street.

It is the glass and metal facing of the building -- called the curtain wall in the trade -- that will give One Rincon its look, the way the dark color of the Bank of America building gives that tower its distinctive appearance, the way the white bulk of the Telephone Company building dominated the skyline south of Market Street in an earlier San Francisco.

One Rincon, the first of several glass towers planned for Rincon Hill, will remake the San Francisco skyline. How it looks is important.
