Los Angeles skyscraper tops out as tallest Western building
LOS ANGELES - A new skyscraper in downtown Los Angeles has become the tallest building west of the Mississippi River.
Construction workers on Saturday placed a 10-ton spire atop the Wilshire Grand Tower. With that addition, the 73-story tower tops out at 1,099 feet.
That's 81 feet higher than nearby U.S. Bank Tower, which held the tallest building record since 1989.
The Wilshire Grand still has some construction work scheduled. The $1 billion hotel and office complex is scheduled to open next March.
