Sadly the only change is the Wilshire Tower, but it adds nicely anyway

Amazing how now that China is rising, American cities, with the exception of New York, start looking puny in comparision.

New World cities--that is, America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and a few others--have lots of space and relatively low or less dense populations. This has resulted--and for a very long time now--in the growth of vast suburbs comprised of fully-detached houses built on relatively large lots/sections.

People, when given the opportunity, will push outwards and stake a claim of their own. That's a true sign of middle-class wealth and health.

Ain't nothing puny about that.

I agree
Its western values and principle - part of our respective "Dream" mythologies
The American + Aussie + NZ, Canadian and South African dream is still strongly a suburban one
This is a pic of Johannesburg which illustrates your point really well:

Amazing how (with the exception of Hong Kong) they finally managed to catch up.

It's a good looking spire. Definitely not an afterthought.

And, you can actually see it from LAX which is amazing.

The spire is too long IMO, looks weird being surrounded by all these blocky/boxy skyscrapers. In the other hand, it opens a way for including more 'futuristic' style buildings in LA downtown.

I just love LA's skyline, the interaction with the mountains behind the towers is just so appealing. About the tower: from some angles the spire appears too big, not in accord with the rest of the building's proportions, from some other angels it looks nice, I guess. The good thing about the tower is that it looks so sleek, 21st century.
