I wonder why they picked those last few windows to install at the very end.

The stabilization in this gif is top notch. /u/uhlexo did a great job. edit: misread the name :P
17 Apr 2018 08:44 - +273
No you didnt. You literally took the same title to repost this from r/gifs.
17 Apr 2018 05:57 - +163
Well done capturing it! The weirdest thing about the tower itself is that it's nearly impossible to escape its looming presence almost everywhere in the city. I'm tempted to make a joke saying that r/erections would appreciate this, but I won't.

The tower going up in the background is mesmerising

NOW THE SALESFORCE MAY BE CALLED WHENEVER CRIMES Is AFOOT.

I love the construction, but given my experience using Salesforce products in the past, i now dislike it with a passion.
17 Apr 2018 09:51 - +18
God, I wish we had California's weather here. Every frame looked so nice.
17 Apr 2018 09:14 - +12
HOW DO THEY GET THE CRANES DOWN AT THE END?!
17 Apr 2018 08:05 - +9
How do they move those cranes up the skyscraper and then get them down when finished?
17 Apr 2018 09:57 - +7
OP stole this pic
17 Apr 2018 09:45 - +6
What software did you use for making this?
17 Apr 2018 07:52 - +4
Just like SimCity.
17 Apr 2018 08:57 - +4
Can someone explain to me how they get the crane down after completion?
17 Apr 2018 06:30 - +4
Your good weather to bad weather ratio is super nice.
17 Apr 2018 08:10 - +3
Oh my god. I had an apt. with full view of that, there were two cranes that looked like arms.
17 Apr 2018 11:08 - +3
Hey, /u/icorrectotherpeople. /r/quityoubullshit https://reddit.com/r/oddlysatisfying/comments/8cr9et/i_took_a_picture_of_salesforce_tower_every_work/dxhh97l?context=3 Such an ironic username

It’s called the Salesforce Dildo
17 Apr 2018 10:28 - +2
He did, you didn't
17 Apr 2018 11:26 - +2
Thats one of the coolest things I've ever seen
17 Apr 2018 10:51 - +2
Nice
17 Apr 2018 10:25 - +2
My SO helped work on this! Thanks for making this, it’s really cool to see the progress
17 Apr 2018 10:56 - +2
Had a field trip here about a month ago. Their elevators get you from the lobby to the 10th floor in under 30 seconds.
17 Apr 2018 11:26 - +2
Why not just come up with your own title you lazy fuck
17 Apr 2018 09:26 - +2
Now they're *literally* a company based in the clouds...
17 Apr 2018 13:05 - +2
I kept seeing the name Sales Force in passing I finally had to Google it and read the Wikipedia. I never would have guessed they were a cloud computing company...wtf...I thought they were some kind of contract sales company... That name sucks.
17 Apr 2018 11:11 - +2
It would be cooler if you weren't a pathological liar.
17 Apr 2018 09:54 - +2
My cousin moved high up there and now makes a shit ton

How could SF approve such a hideous alteration of its skyline? Now it looks like Dubai
17 Apr 2018 10:39 - +1
I honestly stopped paying attention to the tower going half way through and was watching the other building going up in the background.
17 Apr 2018 10:42 - +1
Bless you
17 Apr 2018 10:23 - +1
I was like wow they're putting the windows on real quick, then they weren't windows, then they put on the windows, then I wasn't sure they were the windows, then they were the windows for sure this time.

Damn...that was built in a year? It's taken a state contractor that long to build a simple highway overpass in my city.
17 Apr 2018 10:48 - +1
Must not be Milwaukee, but that building going up and the one to the left sure looks like Northwestern Mutual in Milwaukee
17 Apr 2018 10:28 - +1
That escalated quickly
17 Apr 2018 10:56 - +1
But how does the crane get down?
17 Apr 2018 10:16 - +1
Weather seems nice there.
17 Apr 2018 11:06 - +1
And my university can’t even complete a parking garage in 6 months
17 Apr 2018 10:20 - +1
WTF they build them bottom up?
17 Apr 2018 10:36 - +1
This was a timelapse and it STILL felt like it took forever.
17 Apr 2018 10:26 - +1
Serious question: how tf do they bring the crane back down after the building is complete?
17 Apr 2018 10:30 - +1
Has "How it's Made" ever done a 60 minute episode on skyscrapers?
17 Apr 2018 10:28 - +1
You...you never took a day off for a year and a half?
17 Apr 2018 06:21 - +1
Was this taken from the Cudahy?
17 Apr 2018 10:31 - +1
I always wonder if I’d have the persistence to do something like this if given the chance.
17 Apr 2018 09:24 - +1
What are they using to fertilize that thing? Wow.
17 Apr 2018 10:38 - +1
Huh, I always thought they built em from top to bottom....
17 Apr 2018 09:54 - +1
I always wonder, when watching a tower get enclosed w windows Why do they leave one or two out for a while? Did they break that one and the windows are all numbered? Did an installer just skip a window frame and nobody catches it for a few weeks? Just wondering...
17 Apr 2018 10:40 - +1
You can see sorrow in this pic as the days of the flag at half mass flutter by.
17 Apr 2018 10:02 - +1
Oh damn there's a second tower being built too.
17 Apr 2018 10:44 - +1
Damn, that's awesome
17 Apr 2018 11:20 - +1
Why can’t they do this with the world trade center, and rebuild
17 Apr 2018 10:47 - +1
So they started from the bottom, huh? Interesting choice.
17 Apr 2018 11:16 - +1
My hubby is an Ironworkers in San Francisco and I just showed him this. He said it’s the best thing he’s ever seen “on the web.”
17 Apr 2018 10:49 - +1
Ayy just build lol
17 Apr 2018 11:13 - +1
I'm doing the same thing, except it's just taking pictures of myself. I'm almost at the one year mark yay!
17 Apr 2018 11:04 - +1
Guess it takes a lot of real estate to house all those shitty designers and engineers
17 Apr 2018 11:11 - +1
This could be a subtle Cialis commercial
17 Apr 2018 11:06 - +1
No I took the pictures
17 Apr 2018 10:12 - +1
love how at the end the building just zips up like a jacket
17 Apr 2018 11:12 - +1
That zipper window job at the end though 😍
17 Apr 2018 10:08 - +1
It's sunny where you live
17 Apr 2018 11:13 - +1
This gif is reversed, they are actually taking it apart
17 Apr 2018 10:05 - +1
No snow in a year and a half. Must be nice.
17 Apr 2018 11:17 - +1
We need more of this and less of Trump’s stories with Putin
17 Apr 2018 10:05 - +1
Congrats on that solid one level
17 Apr 2018 11:23 - +1
And it never rained...
17 Apr 2018 10:04 - +1
...you went outside every day for a year?
