Went to a wedding rehearsal and dinner at the Jonathan Club, and was disappointed that my view of the Wilshire Grand was entirely blocked by the PWC building... And then I realized I actually had a surprising angle on it, peekabooing out of the reflection on the Aon building.

The Wilshire Grand is being prominently filmed today due the protest in Los Angeles! It looks great!

What's the world coming to? I know some people here don't like the spire, "fake supertall", etc., but there's no need to mount a protest about it...

not to throw more wood into the fire, but i understood the spire to be 116' above the crown, which would make the crown elevation 984', what your saying is the spire is 166' above the crown, correct ?

I also read somewhere that the spire tip is actually 1.099' from the plaza, as if that really matters,

It was an anti-Trump protest. You're gonna accuse me of being political, but I'm just correcting you.

You're not correcting me. I knew what you meant. You'll note the ellipsis on the end of my quip which to most folks indicates irony.
