Watch LU 105 Members Build Tallest Building West of the Mississippi
Award winning videographer Kelly Candaele documents sheet metal workers employed on the construction of the Wilshire Grand in Los Angeles, CA. Once completed, its height will surpass the U.S. Bank Tower by 82 ft (25 m). The building will be part of a mixed-use hotel, retail, observation decks, shopping malls and office complex, expected to revitalize downtown Los Angeles and the area surrounding the building. The development of the complex is estimated to cost $1.2 billion. The plans include 67,000 square feet of retail, 677,000 square feet of Class A office space and 900 hotel rooms. InterContinental is the tower’s hotel component, comprising 900 rooms and suites occupying the 38th to the 70th floors.
