No matter where you are in the city, you can’t miss Salesforce Tower. From the Presidio to peaking through the clouds, the building is an unmistakable sight on the San Francisco skyline.
Now the wait to tour the top of the tower is over. If you weren’t able to book a tour of Salesforce Tower this past spring when the 1,070-foot tall building first opened its doors to the public, now is your chance.
Salesforce announced new dates for its free public tours of the Tower’s 61st floor. Tours begin Aug. 24 and are offered on a monthly basis through Jan. 25. Visitors can reserve a spot for up to five guests via the Salesforce Tower Tours website.
Registered guests will be treated to a 360-degree view of the city from the top floor of the Salesforce Tower. The floor is designed as a lounge area, and features a coffee bar and kitchen in addition, of course, to spectacular views of the bay. Four tours will be offered per day and run for approximately one hour. (Guests are limited to one tour per year.)
The tallest building west of the Chicago, Salesforce envisions its tropical-themed 61st floor, called the Ohana Floor, as a community-oriented space. Ohana is the Hawaiian word for “family.” While daytime use is restricted to employees, the space is available for nonprofit groups and schools in the evenings and on weekends.
Spots to the highly anticipated tours were snagged up in record time, so RSVP early before space runs out.
