Korean Air is bringing a Korean barbecue tenant to Wilshire Grand: sources
Sources at ICSC said head of Hanjin Group will create restaurant concept

https://therealdeal.com/la/2016/05/2...grand-sources/


UPDATED, 2:46 a.m., May 24: Korean Air’s $1.2 billion development in Downtown Los Angeles will, rather appropriately, include a Korean barbecue joint, The Real Deal has learned.

The decision to seek out a Korean barbecue tenant for the 73-story Wilshire Grand development was made at a corporate level, involving both the development company Korean Air and its parent company, Hanjin Group, according to a spokesperson for the project.

The roughly 10,000-square-foot restaurant space in the plaza of the building will be one of three in the Wilshire Grand development, said sources at the International Council of Shopping Center’ annual Las Vegas convention on Monday. The second restaurant, La Boucherie, will be part of the 900-room Intercontinental hotel at the top of the development. The third food tenant is not yet known.

When completed, the Wilshire Grand will be 1,100-feet tall and will include the hotel, more than 365,100 square feet of office space, 45,100 square feet of a retail space, outdoor areas and a sky lobby with views of the city. There will also be an infinity pool.

Cushman & Wakefield is leasing the building.
“This building will be incredible,” John Cushman III, chairman of global transactions at Cushman & Wakefield, told The Real Deal earlier this year. “From the last (big office tower Downtown) that was built to this building, when it is completed, it will have been 24 years. So technology on everything has changed: structural, mechanical.”

Spire or no spire, this is the finest major new building in downtown LA since WWII. The post-modern junk looks even worse in comparison.

Why this building appear as 335m height when the real height is 284,8m?? That spire is just like the Empire State Building anntena, for instance, and nobody says that the Empire Stateīs heigt is 443,2m, but 381m.
I live in a 8 block of flats of around 25m height. Now imagine itīs installed a spire of 150m in my building: could it be said that now I live in a highrise? Obviously no. So then, why do not apply the same criteria with many skyscrapers that are lower that the data says?
Thatīs how I see that.

A spire is never treated as a "roof", it is treated as a spire, and the roof as the roof. in the lists they feature the height of the spire (ifthe building has one) and the roof separately. If you mean that it shouldn't be counted as the highest part of the building, taht's another thing.

ESB is not counted because is not a spire, it is an antenna. It has a pure functional purpose and as a matter of fact, it wasn't part of the original design of the building, it was added several years after it was finished.

Also, ESB antenna, as many other antennas in buildings, are regularly modernized, in order to update its broadcasting capabilities, meaning the antenna could be shortened or lengthened based in pure technical reasons.

This spire is architectural and is not likely to be modified in the future. That is why one is counted and the other not.

Here's a nice Japan Airlines fly-past of DTLA when the WGC was nearing completion. Carries on to a nice landing at LAX.

I don't know what to think...If you built that 150 m spire and uploaded some pics it'd be easier to judge...Maybe it would count as a high-rise! Send progress photos!

This is an excellent looking tower, theres no doubt about it. However, if we could all put aside our differences for a minute and utilize logic rather than sentiment, then we will all agree that this is NOT a real supertall. We all know that this is a subjective fact. Los Angeles has one real supertall. This building really compliments the rest of the skyline well.

That's an oxymoron. It's an opinion. Not everyone is going to be on the same page; I don't get why people have such a big problem with that.
