The person to ask is "Tower Guy" in the projects section in the Los Angeles forum. He is the core crane operator.

Why? It's a very attractive building, with excellent cladding. The glass/white combo looks amazing in the sunlight. Plus the setbacks are distinctly LA pre-spire rule change.

So is the core definitively topped-out; there are no more jumps to be made?
And all remaining vertical construction is just lattice work for the top floors/spire?

It rained most of yesterday evening for the first time in about a month. Most disappointing ENSO for SoCal ever. Also, rec. & parks has really stepped up their game with the downtown cluster.

Is no one able to answer my questions from two days ago?

The concrete core is topped according to Tower Guy on the WG page in the projects section for Los Angeles.The blue form will come down when the concrete work is complete and the steel can continue up. The lattice looking structure will continue up from here then the spire.

They've had a bit of precipitation in Los Angeles, which has many benefits: greener trees, cleaner air, and snow along the mountains in the distance (skiing!).

this tower seems to suit LA very well, fits right in with all these glassy facades, yet still remains original due to them curves, baby.

The core is topped out, but I believe still not quite finished. More rebar and one final pour I believe, could be mistaken. The rest is steelwork on the final two floors, then the sky terrace, "sail", and spire. At the rate they've been going it seems like the superstructure should be topped out by summer.

Re: your El Niņo comment - part of the problem is that this year's El Niņo is SO strong that it pushed farther north than usual. Central and Northern California have been getting all the precipitation, even Oregon and Washington, too. Sucks for us SoCal folk expecting a change in our weather and bracing for storms, but up north is where we need it anyway. Secondly, while January/February have been far more pleasant than we were led to believe, El Niņo remains a "threat" well into April. It's possible we get some spring storms as the system weakens and moves back south.

Depending on what part of the city you're talking about, L.A. is quite green. Downtown is surrounded in the distance by desert mountains, and as the city core it's more densely built up than other parts of the region, leading to a more "brown" look. Move west of the city center and L.A. becomes an oasis. Recent rain helps, and we've had a very warm February so many trees are blooming early.
