Love this tower, especially the crown and the cladding. Since L.A. is near a seismic fault, does anyone know up to which magnitude earthquake this tower is built to resist?

Magnitude 8 if I remember correctly.

Hunter back at it with the incredible photos. Notice how Metropolis is filling in the gaps on the right. I'm sorry for the image sizes. I wish they were smaller.



These are by Paul Wright of the DTLA Dev page on FB.





This one should give you an idea of how the spire will look. Although it'll be a bit shorter and well lit.

brilliant photos, love the crown's steelwork, looks really elegant.
also, on a sidenote, the skyline of LA is nicely balanced imo, especially looking on Mr. Kerharts photos.

Great photos I wonderful addition to LA's skyline. After the installation of the spire it should become the tallest.

That crane makes a good illusion of Wilshire Grand Tower's spire. Maybe keep the crane on the Wilshire Grand Tower and use it as the buildings spire??

...Very skeptical about that "spire".
More a miserable rod than a spire.

Yes it is a stick, but it fits the crown pretty good I think.
