My God!! How does this guy manage to get out of bed every morning, with those balls of steel? Sure, he has a safety harness (its still a good 40 plus floors up), but it takes strong nerves to do this kind of work!

You are correct, they are not playing around one bit! They want to make sure this can withstand whatever we have coming up in our "seismic future," which is good, because I do not think we have that much longer before we get hit with a Northridge (or larger) sized quake, high 6's minimum to mid 7 range probably.

I am beyond fascinated with the grout boxes they used with the diagonal beams to help absorb a lot of energy.

Since there are going to be a lot of tourists, I am willing to bet that there will be a warning in the elevators, reminding people not to panic and to stay put if there is a quake since they are in a building that could probably withstand a nuke its so damn solid. A lot of Hotels in LA have this.. Universal City Hilton, and a few in Santa Monica come to mind - they have warnings on the back of the door to your hotel room, stating the place was built to withstand severe shaking, and to not panic and stay away from the elevators if that happens. They will probably do the same with US Bank Tower if and when they move forward with the obs deck on the 69-71st floors.

This along with US Bank, are probably going to be the safest buildings in the city. All the other towers should be fine in a big quake as well, its the old buildings in the old part of downtown (that were not retrofitted yet) that will be very scary to be in or around when it hits.
