this building is currently in its 30th or 29th real floor, 38th hypothetical floor, its not even half way yet. 43 floors remain to be built, plus the crown, then the spire.

I see, that might be true, so how tall is the building currently by your estimates?

I have been so slammed with work, that I have not been able to take the time to get my ass off the 110, and get some real pics (and not through my dirty windshield). I am not good with pictures, and even worse with pics while driving.

WG has clearly grown, and it looks like level 40 is now in the top of da core box! If things keep going like this, we should see the core above level 65 towards the end up the year...

I can see the welders from pretty far away when approaching the WG in the morning. Its beautiful, and I am very happy to see this beast along with all of the other projects around growing up to be big and strong!

Sorry the pics are shitty, I just wanted to get some shots to check out the height. I should be able to get much better pics in the near future - I will just park and walk over to the WG, and take my time with a much better camera, and take the time to clean them up and size them accordingly.

Great shot. I've seen it last year when it was in its foundations. Glad to see it that high.

This thing is growing like a ******* weed now! This morning when I passed the WG, there were welders all over, spanning across several of the upper floors in the steel. I took more pics, but I am going to hold off another few days since I plan on getting some real pics, and not cell phone pics taken through my dirty-ass windshield!

I expect that the forms will be jumping up again soon, probably any day now, and we will officially be at level 41.

There is a live cam on the roof of the 40 story Earnest & Young building that allows you to zoom in on any part of the site and wipe between images to see progress. It takes an image every 12 minutes. "Construction Camera Wilshire Grand-Angle 1" Do a search.

All I did is do a search on Yahoo. "Wilshire Grand Cam 1" Or even "Oxblue Wilshire Grand". It will come up as "Construction Camera: Wilshire Grand - Angle 1" Just Click when you see that. The image should come up. No login or password needed.
