The top floor is the lobby. Shouldn't be a problem to get some good photos

It's really nice to see this one movee forward. It might not be the tallest, but it certainly is beautiful and a great addition to the city of angels

I think he meant by roof height, but if the crown/helipad really is 984 feet it won't be much shorter than US Bank Tower

Such a beautiful building but I can't tell if it's really 984' to the roof/crown, looks more like 934'... if that were the case it would be really sad that it's not a real supertall

How come there are no diagrams/height figures?

You are right that the roof reaches up to 934'. It's been a while that people around the forum are spreading 'information' that the crown height reaches 984' but I have not seen any official source that states it. I've searched around the web looking for the interview where Chris Martin states that the crown height reaches 1,000ft, but couldn't find the video. I did find:

Since we already have the information that the roof/pool reaches 934', the crown itself should be 66' reaching up to 1,000', and spire should make a total of 1,100ft. So in this case, we're very fortunate we're getting a real supertall.
