Great to see this new tower has now made itself one of the tallest in the city. Amazing how fast steel has risen.

This is amazing! Got to love everything about this building; the design, the shape, its addition to the skyline, the color, the height... everything!

I'm glad that's all they're doing, it and its twin are nice looking as they are!
It seems that just about every skyscraper in LA wears a roof sign of some sort, while they're not nearly as common in NYC.

The U.S Bank Tower's observatory is going to be great, and include great views of Los Angeles, and the Wilshire Grand. Only the spire and a small portion (maybe 10' of the paraparet will be above the observatory on the U.S Bank Tower.

Love the second pic Oasis-Bangkok posted, seems like the entire downtown LA is experiencing significant construction boom, it's not just 1 new skyscraper. Tons of projects rising

Definitely! There is a tremendous influx of investment coming to downtown l.a., especially from the pacific rim. In 5-10 years if the projects in the pipeline come to fruition, as well as future developments, downtown will be changed considerably

Beautiful architecture in amazing surrendings:LA is definitely the city of Angels!!
And to catch a glimpse of downtown's soul one has to screen "Collateral",the movie.
I told you! LA is THE ONE!
