In fact, it is! Apparently biggest boom since the 1920s....

This building is gorgeous. Hands down my favorite of the new crop.... she is the most sophisticated and classy addition we've seen. Like a cross between the NY Times building and Comcast Center in Phillie......

New Rendering Unveils 66-Storey Tower in Los Angeles
Quote:
Another surface parking lot in Los Angeles is biting the dust and giving way to a 66-storey tower. A newly released rendering showcases the rectangular skyscraper at 925 South Figueroa Street, mere steps from the Olympic Tower site and the L.A. Live entertainment complex. Designed by CallisonRTKL for Regalian LLC, the project landed on the desks of the Los Angeles Planning Department earlier this year.

Yeah, I'm generally not one to complain about height, but it seems like a no-brained to tack on an additional 25 feet just for the distinction.

Its 9 feet shy of 300 meters, the 'official' measurement of a supertall structure...and 25 feet short of 1000' feet. Id love for it to be a 1000 footer, but am happy enough at 975, since we were all believing it might have only scraped 900 feet, which, again, everyone was still happy about. LOL. Great looking tower...great location, great height.
No complaints from me!

American developers don't care about some arbitrary "supertall" status that only skyscraper wonks and the CTBUH (because it's what they get paid to do) care about. American builders just build what's necessary. If this was China, it would be 984 feet.
