I love that the WG fits in nicely in the iconic Baldwin Hills shot of DTLA. It and the Aon bracket the US Bank beautifully, and preserve the "wedding cake" profile of the skyline from that angle that has always been loved. Awesome shots guys.

Who would you be offending?

Height to tip or architectural top, take your pick, it's over 300m:

That is the Westwood skyline in the foreground, Century City in the middle, and downtown in the background. It really is an amazing telephoto lens that took that picture, it makes Westwood and Century City look like they in the same city blocks and downtown not far away.

Is NOT really the tallest. I agree with that. It's a beautiful tall building with a large flag pole.
You can notice it immediately is those pics.

Wow, there's glass already on the sail. I didn't realize that. Almost finished.

Nope, I mean the Fox Plaza since that's the real name of the building. Sure, McClane is a fictitious character but if I'd said Bruce Willis it might have been even more confusing.
