The 33rd floor is now showing under the blue formwork since they lifted it yesterday. The 37th is being built now.

What a beautiful shot of Downtown. In a few years you will see the skyline extend to the south with 3 multiple tower complexes that are under way.

Actual floors then yes 7 or 8 less then they indicate. I went to a restaurant on the 21st floor of an office building nearby and from that floor was level with the 22 and floor of the WG

Just drove by on my way home while on the 110, and it looked to be at 38 right now. I didn't get to take pics today, since there were so many cops on the road in that area. I did get a few from last Friday, but I need to take some better ones.

Any estimates on how tall the building might currently be? I'd like to update my diagram

According to SLJR who is involved with the construction. The 34th floor is +662'6'' This floor is now just appearing at the bottom of the blue formwork. The top of the formwork is 4 floors above that. Street level is +286' The floors are now spaced at 11'6''

Thank you Kanto - nice diagram!!

Taken from my phone just yesterday. It seems like every time I go to take a picture, a ******* cop ends up appearing out of what seems to be nowhere.







One of these days after work I will pull off the freeway and try to find a good vantage point, and use a real digital camera to get some better pics!

But that's only with the spire. The building itself has nearly half of its full height already

The building core is growing by about 12' per week
