She's built to withstand quite a bit. Not only does she have a massive core but she is retrofitted with outrigger columns to help support the structure. The CEO of AC Martin called them Shock Absorbers.

Quote:
He compared the landlocked buildings to movements in the ocean, saying modern structures are designed so they don’t lock up from the vibrations of a large earthquake.
“Like surfers, they don’t fight the wave, they ride the wave,” he said.

That figures right into the Wilshire Grand design. Martin pointed to a situation where intense Santa Ana winds whip into Southern California at the same time as a massive earthquake strikes. The 73-story Downtown tower, he said, would essentially go with the flow.

This tower just looks strong. Beams and core are huge.
