Epic shot!

Sales Force is a better looking building, but this is the best lit building built in a long time. Perfect for LA's image.

Love this tower but just disappointed in how they used the spire to make it the tallest in the city and state. It kinda feels like they cheated doing that but I absolutely agree on the lighting.

I think it's time for the Wilshire Grand to switch its white color to holiday colors. Same with the US Bank, they've been white and it's December already. I just love the holiday skyline, ok I'm out

I think the main purpose of the spire was to pay homage to this:

You guys keep saying this like it's the first building ever to have a spire.

I am continually impressed with LA's skyline. Great massing and density. Its starting to look like it punches at its weight class. When I visited years ago I was impressed with the density, it reminded me of Center City Philly and maybe even larger in scale in certain areas, albeit not nearly as bustling.
