Thank You, Federal Reserve: The Salesforce Tower Tour

By Robert Wenzel

Robert Blumen, a Lead DevOps Engineer at Salesforce and occasional writer at, was kind enough to give me a tour yesterday of Salesforce Tower here in San Francisco.

It is the tallest skyscraper in San Francisco (1,070-feet) and the second tallest  building west of the Mississippi River after the Wilshire Grand Center (1,100 feet) in Los Angeles, though the Salesforce Tower is taller when Wilshire Grand Center's decorative spire is excluded.

The top of the tower has an excellent lounge area with, of course, spectacular views.

I had visited, pre-911, the World Trade Center top floor a few times but this one is more comfortable and cool in many ways.

The World Trade Center, first of all, was much taller at 1,368 feet, so the view was much more like the view from a plane.

Salesforce Tower gives a much closer experience, kind of a helicopter type view.

But it is the very comfortable lounge experience that really sets it apart. I saw many Salesforce employees meeting with I am presuming clients, vendors etc., throughout the floor.

The floor is called the Ohana Floor. Janet Yellen and Jay Powell, I'm sure, are very proud of what they have created with their money pumping here.

Here is a youtube I found online that gives a good sense of what the floor is like.
