Gorgeous building and how it balanced out the skyline a bit. The spire is a welcome addition. Hopeful for more towers to fill out the gaps.

what a beautiful picture! It seems like they got the uneven lighting of the spire fixed.

not sure, since this is the view of the shadow side of the spire (the sun sets on the other side). Maybe the photographer edited the picture by brightening the spire.

No editing was done on the spire, its just the city lights bouncing off the white (it helps that the background is deep blue).

It looks pretty silly when the spire is 'lit' though. Only a small portion of the bottom, and a small portion of the top light up. Hope they fix it.

Thanks for enjoying the images.

Not crazy about that spire at all. It makes the building look like a gigantic 1990's cell phone.

ARGH! MarshallKnight is right, that's pretty much all I will see from now on from the north side of the building. Why you do this??

The Wilshire Grand Tower viewed from the city of Torrance. I love the city of Torrance and that view makes me want to love the Los Angeles metropolitan area way more than any other metropolitan area in the United States.

Wilshire Grand Tower and the city of Torrance all in one picture. LOVE IT!!!!
