FYI, Wilshire Grand is being lit up in the colors of the sunset this week in support of LA's bid for the 2024 Olympics (link to their website)

I'm not sure! Though the building has an opening date of July 1st, so I would have to imagine sometime in the next month and a half

To roof, US Bank Tower.
To tip, Wilshire Grand.

LA just had a 975' tower proposed a few weeks ago too.

No one is defunding research even though some of the research is junk and political nonsense. Many of these agencies are deep state bureaucracies that put over-regulations, myths, ideology, power and cronyism before common sense, principles and science. Perpetuating livelihoods, controlling the masses and annual fat budgets will corrupt even the purist soul.

Stop generalizing and jumping on far left propaganda bullshit bandwagon.

Take your alternative facts elsewhere. This thread is for Wilshire Grand.

It'll be typically moronic, but surprising if they don't light up the spire, which is this tower's signature milestone. The crown is fantastic and it shows what LA has been missing with its flat roof ordinance.

I'd say this is LA's best post-war building by a long shot.

Incredible, I haven't visited this page in several months, and now I see the thing is completed - externally, anyway! Looks very good...
