Was $49.99. Lowest price on CCC, but not the first time at this price.

I grew up and used to work in the SF Bay Area and when this set came out recently, I saw negative reviews because it included the new huge (phallic?) building which many people don't like at all but I guess it's unmistakable on the skyline now. I haven't been back to the area since that was built, so when I saw downtown SF on TV this Summer, I realized, yeah, that thing is kind-of ugly on an established skyline. (when I grew in the area, the Transamerica pyramid and the Bank of America building -- both represented here, were the big new buildings; I think they were built in the 1960s.)

As an aside, funny story about phallic buildings in San Francisco. One of the old monuments erected in the early 1900s was a round tower on the top of a hill called Coit tower [sfrecpark.org]. It's actually in this skyline set also, I think. It was to honor firefighters and some say it was designed to represent a fire hose nozzle. My friend had his in-laws visiting from France, and was showing them the sights in San Francisco, and explained that it was Coit tower, and they thought he was joking about the name, because if you translate that it means something that might actually be appropriate for it.
I actually live on Telegraph Hill, and Coit Tower is the dominant view on the one side of our humble roof deck and the Golden Gate Bridge is on the other. I've been for private tours of the tower and had access to it without tourists. I have seen in detail the murals on the inside stairs on the way down. It is really magnificent.

I was pretty pissed about the Salesforce Tower. I like reaaaaaly "old" SF. The Saloon, for example. But a friend was like, if you don't accept the future, you only get left behind. I also have come to like some (not all) of the stuff they show from the giant screens at night, like the Eye of Sauron for Halloween.

Salesforce went up, the Coca-Cola neon sign from the 30's is now recently down. Time marches on.

I recently received this as a gift and completed the build over the weekend. I'm really impressed by the small details and now have a desire to pick up some of the other LEGO Architecture sets. Would recommend. A fun, surprisingly challenging build (lots of small pieces in very specific places) and a great display piece.

Posted the same comment in the Paris set.

Good price for the set. I have not seen it drop further but if you can PM with target, they have spend $50 on select Lego and get $10 back as gift card. I'm going to pick up the Paris and San Francisco sets at $39.99 each plus 5% with red card and receive $10 Target gift card back.

Salesforce tower. It sucks. If I got this kit, I'd just skip that section.

Same. It's ruined the skyline IMO.

When did the Coke sign come down?!?? I live up north of Sacramento and haven't been down since a Giants game last year. I've been wanting to just come down to drive around to see some stuff I've never spent much time at (Kezar for one) but not sure how crowded everything is.

Same, it's the reason I didn't buy this set immediately.

I think I may bite at this price and just not built the top of the tower, making it flat and just pretending it's something else.
