>> Salesforce is topping of the tallest building west of the Mississippi. I'm Jonathan Weber, Technology Editor Reuters News, and I'm standing on the 60th floor of the new Salesforce tower in down town San Francisco. It's 62 stories tall, quite a bit taller than any other building in San Francisco.

Salesforce, a very successful software company based here in San Francisco. They employ about 10,000 people in the city. They'll be occupying about half of this building. The founder and CEO of Salesforce is Marc Benioff, he's a San Francisco native. He is often made a big deal about his commitment to the city, and I think that having a very visible building like this is kind a part of Marc Benioff thing and part of his leadership style.

There are a number of new buildings in this part of town and there was a little problem, actually more than a little problem, with the building right next door. So a very large residential tower called the Millennium Tower. It turns out that that tower is sinking and tilting.
00:01:02
This is a huge problem like nobody quite knows how to fix it. There's gonna be just a fiesta of litigation over this for the next 20 years. Hopefully we will only have one leaning tower of San Francisco and it won't be this one.
