Facts

  • Tallest building in the United States west of Chicago.
  • Claimed title to the tallest building in the city by surpassing the US Bank Tower in architectural height with a decorative spire that reaches 1,100 feet.
  • The spire is 294 feet tall, with 172 feet extending above the height of the crown which tops out at 928 feet.
  • The US Bank Tower, at 1,018 feet, still retains bragging rights to the highest occupiable floor and a higher roof height than Wilshire Grand Center.
  • First skysrcaper in L.A. since Los Angeles City Hall in 1928 that will not have a flat roof.
  • According to the architect, the design of the crown was inspired by Half Dome in Yosemite Valley.
  • The crown and the building’s 'spine' are equipped with LED lights that can display neon colors, digital signs, and advertisements.
  • To build the foundation, crews poured 21,200 cubic yards of concrete in the world’s longest continuous concrete pour.
  • Originally conceived as two towers, the Wilshire Grand project dropped plans for the second tower in 2012.
