Not really. It looks a bit brighter when you're closer to it but it's still the same lighting.

Wilshire Grand with Korean Air Logo by HunterKerhart.com, on Flickr

Korean Air logo's now atop the building. She's a real beaut now that's she's finished and all lit up (now if they could only fix the spire and get the whole thing illuminated! )

Recently, and I couldn't find a vid of it, for the awesome wins of the Dodgers, they've lit the sail Dodger Blue in waves.

Korean Air logo looks sharp, now let's get that spire lit up! (I'm not letting this go! )

From my walkabout downtown yesterday:



Kind of amazing how bright the LEDs are when they come on during daylight hours.

I still wish the original Thomas Properties proposal for two towers and 1,250 feet was ultimately constructed, which would have placed it comfortably above the U.S. Bank Tower in roof height and elevation as the city's tallest building. I understand market conditions weren't favorable to office space at the time, but such development should consider the long-term.

Please don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic tower, and compared to 1 WTC, it's quite underrated. Unlike 1 WTC, it was unnecessarily watered-down. At least it's better than that ugly trainwreck called Metropolis. We can only hope a new tallest comes to fruition between now and the 2028 Summer Olympics.

Also, I'm not a fan of the logo at the top.
