The rumors I've heard are an opening date of July 1, so if that is the case then June should be the last month of work on the building before it opens!

Looking at those photos I'm reminded how well our new tallest building fits in LA. It has a "good side" for the paparazzi to photograph (your choice on which side) and it needs lifts for a little bit of extra height to stand level with its "co-star" the US Bank Tower. All it needs is to have lunch at the Ivy with its agent and the WG will fit right in in this town

I know that color scheme was specifically adopted for the Olympic committee's visit to match the LA 2024 bid logo, but I hope it becomes part of the regular rotation. It's really gorgeous.

It would be 934 feet tall. That would be the second tallest building in LA.

934 isn't that short.

LA is in a dire need of more and more supertalls. This one is not enough.

Are there empty plots downtown for this use?

Looks fantastic, be sure to check out the video on the site showing the sail in action. It also answers our question: will it be the Korean Air logo or Intercontinental logo near the top of the building? Well it turns out... both!

Re: the spire... word on the street (i.e. from some Facebook postings) is that the spire will be fully lit for the grand opening of the Wilshire Grand on June 23 this Friday. It sounds like the idea is to light the spire to "announce the new tallest building in LA". However, I don't see any additional lighting on the spire and I'm not sure exactly how they are going to light the rest of it? Guess we will see on Friday!
