Looks a lot like pentominium in Dubai at this stage.

Right, because nothing speaks to the class of a place than when the Kardashians step foot into a place.

I wish these idiots would just go away, but then I guess that's impossible when there are hoardes of mental deficients that prop them up and make them relevant when they have no business being so.

Saw the core and cranes from far away today, about 12 miles. I was working in the San Gabriel Mountains above Altadena/Pasadena (I love my job).

It can't really be seen in the photo well, it's the best I could get.

Does anybody know the strength of the concrete used in the WG, compared to the other buildings in and around LA? I wonder how that core with the 4' thick walls at the bottom, would compare to the US Bank Tower's core which is massively reinforced.

I was in the Kingdom Tower thread, and people were talking about concrete strength, and surprisingly, the concrete in 432 park ave, and WTC for example, is actually using stronger concrete. I copied the post from the other thread, and pasted it below. Interesting stuff on the link, but nothing in LA was on the list of examples. Lots of stuff in NY and many other seismically stable regions were on this list.

How is it surprising the WTC is using stronger concrete?

Hey folks, I made you a progress diagram so that you can compare the progress of this baby to the buildings arround it. As noted above, the current heigght should be approximately 110 meters or 361 feet
