I am one of the lucky ones as I get to watch from my office window everyday.


According to the [URL=“https://www.facebook.com/WilshireGrandCenter?hc_location=timeline”]Wilshire Grand Facebook page[/URL], there should be a big announcement today. Probably the hotel operator.


Intercontinental Hotels & Resorts is the operator. Announcement comes with new renderings:

Almost there! I always love to see our top tier cities continue to grow.


lads there’s been an accident:

A worker fell from the 53d floor


Spotted this on CNN just now. Took a screenshot. Kinda a grim construction update, but it will do.


Terrible to hear…


I also read construction is halted for the time being, for good reason. It was most likely suicide. :cold_sweat: :cry:
