Its going to be much more prominent that I thought!!

Unobstructed from the Transamerica Center Resturant!

Very Nice!

Very Prominent from Dodger Stadium!

Very VERY noticable from Staples Center!

My favorite view, fills in the Gap between Bunker Hill and Downtown.

My only Complaint is that the tower is lined up with US Bank, so eather it Blocks US Bank, or US Bank blocks Park5th.

If anyone wants anymore views just ask!

This shows the elevation of the nearby towers, due to the height of Bunker Hill, the Tower looks much smaller.

I'm not incredibly fond of the design, but at the same time, it's sort of interesting. I think it will suit LA just fine.

hopefully the color will be more intense than the render

perfect for LA's skyline. but I also think it needs taller building, some superetalls (although I think the earthquake situation is serious, so it would need a lot of thinking).

i was just thinking about this.................... L.A. is almost 4 times the size of dubai but dubai is building all the supertalls. i just saw a report that said dubai is on the edge of a fault so a person cant say L.A. doesnt build skyscrapers because of earthquakes. we need to build some monsters here like in dubai. ( jk kinda)

No we don't. Let Dubai do whatever they want. Why should LA compete?

Compete w/ Dubai, Oh come now!

Take away the Highrises and the A380's and your stuck with desert sand.... on the other hand Los Angeles has too much to even compete with them!!! So why brag about a few scrapers!
