It turned out as a beautiful building that's for sure We are lucky to have it in L.A.! As for the spire lighting, ugh! Looks like there wasn't any secret lighting plan we didn't know about and what we saw is what we got. I still have hope though that they will get around to lighting up the spire. I'd like to think they have plans to do so, but it wasn't worth the loss of income to keep the building unoccupied until the additional lighting was added to the top. That's just a hope though, and if it stays as is well... I think at that point might as well just turn the whole thing off instead of having that little spot lit up!


...but this isn't the time to gripe but to celebrate! LA's got a beautiful new supertall, and hopefully she'll get some more company in the years ahead

I understand your point, but that show you saw in that video is not intended to be a permanent thing....not at all.

Funny that this is in LA, where things are meant to be seen for 30 miles around, the place itself is a showcase. The Hollywood sign, for example. This building would not work in New York or Tokyo.

.......and anyways, it's the future of things.

Btw.. those views are from where? I mean.. which floor? Just beneath the balcony? If not, can the public go to the top balcony?
I really like those sunshades.

Yup, the bar at the top is open to the public. Amazing views from up there. The 2 levels below the bar have restaurants and another bar

Is it free to the public? Because I would like to know if it costs money or not, to go to the top observation deck at the top of the Wilshire Grand Tower.
