Jesus, have they still not figured out how to light up the entire spire?

Just walked past and they are testing the full strings of lights on the crown, this is the first time I've ever seen this. No spire though

This has been a HUGE disappointment so far . Fingers crossed they figure it out. my guess is they may have to install more lighting on the spire, not just the bottom and I hope they do so (or something along those lines)

I saw that on Facebook! Nice to see that testing at least

Another great shot from Griffith Park, the L.A. skyline is starting to grow up! And that view is going to be so much better even once the lighting on the Wilshire Grand sail is complete and the finally get the lighting of the spire right (fingers crossed!)

I think the building itself has turned out very good, but yes, it deserves some good lighting.

very cool! Thanks for the video

...So I've been following the restoration of the Coliseum's peristyle on their webcam and it has some nice shots of the skyline and the Wilshire Grand. I've also watched it to see how the spire looks at night, and from what I can tell just by zooming in, it SEEMS like it's well lit:



Obviously the low resolution makes it hard to tell anything definitively, but it looks nice from far away on the Coliseum's webcam. Hopefully though the entire spire is lit up uniformly and they can do some impressive lighting effects with it down the line.

Oh and in above, the top of the building looks odd because the sail isn't lit up, it does look impressive on the webcam when lit. For general reference here is a webcam shot during the day from earlier today
