I like this building as is but think it's kind of lame for a new "tallest". On the bright side it does add a spire to the LA skyline and it'll have public space up top. The city definitely needs a real tallest though.
It's as real as any other cities tallest building with a spire or pole on top.

Yes the glass definitely has a protective coating on it so it will be looking a bit different once its pulled off. Ultimately, I think the glass looks great and compliments the structure. It will make the tower look even taller than it really is, and its a bit early to jump to any conclusions with it at this point.

That was a great idea about parking at Target - Thank you! I want to walk up to the building and take my time since I am not the best with taking pictures. Whenever I take the pics from my car, I dont get them in the best of detail and risk either getting pulled over, or wrapping my car around a pole. I am hoping I can do this tomorrow, especially now that the glass is popping up!

Anybody have any specific questions that they would like to ask, if I can manage to talk to any of the construction workers?

Are there any other buildings nearby that I can take pics of WG from, without getting myself kicked out, and/or arrested? Most of these office buildings are pretty strict and you cant even get anywhere near the elevators without getting stopped.

Seriously? Pretty much all glass look like that from that angle and with so few pieces.

Here it looks much better

High quality cladding. Good glass and good trim.

Yes it is, when I left work and passed WG by around 7pm, it looked like half of the core had jumped. The other half was well on its way to jumping up as well, so we should be at the 42nd floor very quickly at this rate.

Its already looking quite splendid, and gets better by the week!

Okay, you are right, it does look better from that angle. Perhaps it was the picture or the angle it was taken from.
