Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for the WG and the beautiful sunny LA weather and for all the photo updates on this building.

96 is a heat wave. A heat wave I would gladly welcome in the Northeast.

Thanks to global warming, the Northeast US (New York, Washington, Boston, Philadelphia, etc) get 96 every summer.

With or without global warming, You can usually count on a 96 degree day every summer here in Baltimore. This summer, however, was unusually cool.

I would trade our winter weather for 96* any day. You could even throw in your earthquakes. Done deal.

So sorry, but I could NOT resist. When I went to New York in the winter of '12, I almost cried when I landed at LAX back home.

Anything lower than 75 and 5% humidity is winter for us.

It seems that what is marked on the core as the 15th floor is actually the 9th floor. Does it stay consistently off by 6 floors above that?

I was wondering about that as well. I know a lot of buildings will not have a 13th floor, but this got carried away. why?
