Digging is considered to be preparation.

A seamless transition from demolition to excavation. Glad to see the project moving along nicely.

Is the Library tower on a higher surface? I apologize if this has been discussed before because the Library tower is at 1,018 feet. I was curious if the Wilshire was like 20 feet higher in terms of elevation or something.

The library tower is 30 or so feet taller in elevation than the site of the wilshire grand.

Good news for Los Angeles, it could use a new tower. Sadly this will surpass Bank of America Plaza over here, though.

Nice overview. I didn't realize the site is that huge.

Get used to that shot guys. I've been given permission by Hana Financial to use their office as a vantage point to oversee the tower. If you all want to pitch in, we can set up a webcam there!

I live in the LA area. The areas that once were unsafe and decaying are now being revitalized and a tremendous rate. When the economy returns DTLA is going to be the next hot hub to be living in. One by one the parking lots are disappearing and being replaced by highrise condos. The LA our children will be walking through will be a much better place.
