Thought I'd get a contribution in here; was in LA for the first time as an adult last week and captured some photos of this beauty on the 23rd.

Can't wait to see it light up the LA skyline!

The building looks nice. Adds a little bit of flare to LA's flat roofed skyline. It definitely stands out.

The window washer on top of this tower sticks out like a sore thumb but they gotta clean the tower somehow.

It folds down inside the sail when not in use.

Yes, it retreats into the sail. There are supposed to be two of them. They are using it now as a makeshift crane for the last bits of stuff that needs to be lifted at the top of the tower.

I wonder if that includes pieces of the signage we've been speculating about -- either for KAL or whoever has the naming rights. I would be very surprised if the crown was left blank.

A big logo sign is indeed the rule rather than the exception in LA. Although I haven't seen something like it on renders here.
They could always place it sometime later though.

We've seen a couple renders of the Korean Airlines logo on the top:





I think it looks pretty good -- certainly better than a wordy/named logo like Deloitte or US Bank -- and since KAL owns the building, I can't imagine them wasting the free shot in the arm this would give their brand.

I thought it was supposed to have the Intercontinental logo?
