There is no doubt now: We are seeing the structural steel surrounding the concrete core about to break street level:

They will have to raise those cranes pretty soon. The core is higher than the cabs on the cranes now.

Hope it's earthquake proof when the big one hits.

California gets earth quakes!? And there will be a big one?! Do you know when this big one is?! Is there a calendar or something I can check out?

I hate to keep complaining but the building in LA and this Salesforce Tower broke ground around the same time and that building has already topped out. Just too bad how slow the progress is in the construction of Salesforce.

Then stop complaining. This constant "it's not fast enough" is getting awfully repetitive, not to say boring. There is no delay at this point and the construction pace is what conditions (from weather and seismology to fabrication and structural steel members) allow.

I'm not sure of the uses of the Wilshire Grand but I believe it's mixed use and so the hotel occupant was certain. This building is entirely office and the developer made clear they wouldn't proceed beyond the foundations until they had an anchor tenant. With the lease to Salesforce.com they achieved that and began to plan and proceed with above-ground construction which is now fully underway. In fact the core now seems to be at about floor 8 (that's about a floor per week but it should speed up).

You can be sure now that Marc Benioff is planning to occupy the top floor to lead his empire, he wants to move in soonest.

California Has More Than 99% Chance Of A Big Earthquake WIthin 30 Years, Report Shows
April 15, 2008
Source: U.S. Geological Survey

California has more than a 99% chance of having a magnitude 6.7 or larger earthquake within the next 30 years, according to scientists using a new model to determine the probability of big quakes.

The likelihood of a major quake of magnitude 7.5 or greater in the next 30 years is 46%-and such a quake is most likely to occur in the southern half of the state.

The new study determined the probabilities that different parts of California will experience earthquake ruptures of various magnitudes. The new statewide probabilities are the result of a model that comprehensively combines information from seismology, earthquake geology, and geodesy (measuring precise locations on the Earth's surface). For the first time, probabilities for California having a large earthquake in the next 30 years can be forecast statewide . . . .

The official earthquake forecasts, known as the "Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast (UCERF)," were developed by a multidisciplinary group of scientists and engineers, known as the Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities. Building on previous studies, the Working Group updated and developed the first-ever statewide, comprehensive model of California.

The organizations sponsoring the Working Group include the U.S. Geological Survey, the California Geological Survey and the Southern California Earthquake Center. An independent scientific review panel, as well as the California and National Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Councils, have evaluated the new UCERF study.

The consensus of the scientific community on forecasting California earthquakes allows for meaningful comparisons of earthquake probabilities in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as comparisons among several large faults.

The probability of a magnitude 6.7 or larger earthquake over the next 30 years striking the greater Los Angeles area is 67%, and in the San Francisco Bay Area it is 63%, similar to previous Bay Area estimates. For the entire California region, the fault with the highest probability of generating at least one magnitude 6.7 quake or larger is the southern San Andreas (59% in the next 30 years).

For northern California, the most likely source of such earthquakes is the Hayward-Rodgers Creek Fault (31% in the next 30 years). Such quakes can be deadly, as shown by the 1989 magnitude 6.9 Loma Prieta and the 1994 magnitude 6.7 Northridge earthquakes . . . .

I hope the "it's not going up fast enough" crowd notices that it's gone up 2 floors since March 10 when it looked like this:



That's the 2 floors per week rate they said they'd do.
