I'm not usually impressed with mere height and scale or conspicuous consumption--leave that to Dubai. But this is a beautiful project and worthy of L.A., rather than just another massive structure that could have been thrown up anywhere.

I love the terraces, rooftop garden and the recessed plaza--and the way the project makes imaginative use of the entire site and would contribute to downtown L.A.'s skyline.

I'm not going to get into the Pershing Square tiff, but its architect (if it hasn't already been mentioned) was Ricardo Legorreta.

i personaly like pershing square. its funky and out there. something colorful in the middle of a concrete jungle. a stage or something would help though. make people gather.

I actually really love this project, I think it's striking and beautiful and definitely a compliment to the skyline.

However, the one thing I dislike is that the plaza is not at street level. It's almost pretentious, it doesn't engage or activate the street level, and it's almost as if it's saying, "the rest of the city is not worthy of our open spaces."

Other than that, it's an exciting prospect.





oh, and Threehundred - Inland Empire. Represent.

I think it was made that way so it can overlook Pershing Square.

>I actualy like this project because the plaza is NOT at street level
Pershing square is across the street why need a plaza. Almost every highrise in L.A has a street level plaza. I dont think L.A needs more........!!!!!!!
