Tallest building west of Mississippi River opens in LA

Tallest building west of Mississippi River opens in LA”

"I have achieved my personal dream and fulfilled my promise with L.A. with the opening of Wilshire Grand Center", said Chairman Cho at the event, adding, "This is a good example of foreign investment emphasized by President Trump, and I expect that this building would transform the skyline of downtown Los Angeles, becoming one of L.A.'s landmarks".

The screens consist of 250 million pixels, each no bigger than a pea, ready to explode with vibrant oranges, blues and greens once the sun sets and the building begins to glow. A 2-foot lightning rod at the very top, however, doesn't count. The city ended the flat-roof requirement in 2015.

The Wilshire Grand Centre's spine and sail have programmable LEDs that can provide colourful illumination and visuals.

The building also has over 400,000 square feet of office space.

Restaurants include the open-air Spire 73 offering "chic fire pits" and signature cocktails, and La Boucherie with stratospheric steak prices and a wine list featuring 2,100 wines.

The 73-story Wilshire Grand Center at 900 Wilshire Blvd. was developed by Korean Air, which is owned by Hanjin International Corp., at a cost of more than $1 billion. The record was eclipsed again this April when a foundation for a mall was poured in the United Arab Emirates.

The center, modeled after Yosemite Valley, is an eco-friendly structure built with the latest construction methods, according to the company. Southern California has dozens of faults, and the building is created to withstand about a magnitude-7.5 temblor. It's part of a building boom in downtown L.A., where about 20 high-rises are in the works.

The opening of the Staples Center arena in 1999 helped anchor redevelopment projects in the surrounding area.
