The back of the tower has always been pretty ugly. I think by design the tower is meant to be viewed from angles where it appears wide.

Went to the March for Science this morning, and caught this nice view of WG from the Bunker Hill Bar & Grill (where there was a very LA post-protest brunch scene going on)

A protest march for science? Was there a march against science taking place?

A literal march? No. Just the inexorable march of a government trying to defund the research arms of the EPA, DOE, NOAA, CDC, NIH, NSF, FEMA, state and municipal health agencies, etc.

Well, I guess when the Yes vote succeeds, those marches will be shorter since Sacramento is a lot closer.

Hunter Kerhart posted a very nice photo of the sail lit up to the DTLA Development page

Is that big black hole for the Pepsi logo?

And fwiw I think he's right, the unlit portion of the sail is where the Korean Air logo will go

Youtube user "Not in potato quality" also posted very nice videos of the light up test last night:





Exciting, it looks like in addition to the LED strips we saw tested before, the internal section of the sail will be lit up at night as well. And, in other exciting news, on the DTLA Development page a local writer/reporter seemed to suggest that work on the spire is continuing and it will be lit by more than just the bottom level lights we've seen so far (fingers crossed on that!) So, when the LED strips, internal sail lighting and spire lighting are fully completed, when they all work in tandem we can hopefully expect some very impressive light displays from our new landmark building

Another nice one, via the DTLA Development Facebook group again and user Patrick Coyne:

Hunter Kerhart again via Facebook's DTLA Development page with the nice closeup of the sail lighting :



Quote:
Somethings coming. I'm hoping its the I for Intercontinental Hotel.
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

It seems like the general thought on the Facebook group is that the darkened space on the sail is not for the Korean Air logo, but rather for Intercontinental hotels. They're the brand that will be operating the hotel in the building, which is of course the single largest segment of the development:





The page for the Intercontinental Downtown LA, the location in the Wilshire Grand

Welp guess we'll see!

Looks like they're wrapping up all the missing glass panels.
