Copy and paste, no joke (Bank o' America NYC).

To me, it doesn't seem like it would fit in. I still like it though. Just skeptical...

I don't like this proposal. I would much rather prefer a reclad of the existing hotel over this stupid proposal.

heights have not been revealed and won't be until the project goes to the land use committee in about a year. to give you an estimate 60 stories times 13.5 equals 810ft. and the spire adds about 200ft. so 1010ft. which would qualify for a super tall.

I have during the '84 Olympics, and I reject this new tower, and there is nothing you can do to make me like it. The existing hotel has 900 rooms, the new hotel tower has only 700 rooms, so unless they change the plans to match the number of rooms in the current hotel, I don't want this piece of crap tower built. The Wilshire Grand is starting to look like the Hotel Pennsylvania of the West. Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City is also under threat of demolition to make way for a new office tower proposal which is growing stale.

i appreciate your opinion and was not trying to change your mind, just wanted to read your reason behind your thinking. its nice to meet someone who brings opposition to a project, it breaks the boring replies of nice proposal or great building.
time to ruffle some feathers.

i undertsand your objection, but this building, although with less rooms, will spice up the skyline and be more asthetically pleasing than the previous building

Blithely denouncing something as "stupid" and a "piece of crap" won't make anyone on here want to hear your opinions.

Apparently, there is a portion of the old Wilshire Grand that is used for offices. I have changed my mind. The tower should get built, but increase the number of rooms to less than 900 and its height should be between 850-900 feet.

We need more towers in Downtown, this one would be the first with a spire. City ordinance says all buildings MUST have a Helipad for emergency evacuations, that's why L.A. only has flat top buildings, this one will break the mold.

Built now!

You forget the soon to be inaugurated Ritz Carlton (54 stories) Hotel.
