Our skyline won't look so boxy anymore. The Wilshire grand was a nice change..
Tell that to people who've been rescued from high-rise fires via helicopter. It was the current mayor's decision to do away with the high-rise helipads. Apparently he prefers a Manhattan-style skyline over public safety.

How often has that happened? Plus we do have new tech to make those helipads obsolete.

I mean, it's not just a box, so I guess I appreciate that. But it looks like something came down from the sky and split it in two. It's not a clean look by any stretch.


Still, they're creating a new "tallest" building the honest way instead of tacking a 700 foot spire on top of it like everybody else tries to do, so props to them.

Do some research and you'll see how many times it has happened. Even happened here in L.A. Plus, what's the new tech you are referring to?

Now if they were to tack on a spire on top of this building that would be nice.


-also as for the helipad debate. If there was a fire in a skyscraper how many people could you save really if say there's 2,000 people in a burning building and the helicopter only seats 8 people or so?

Good question. Perhaps the elevators will be glass too and they'll be able to fly through the air like that of Willy Wonka's.

Because LA, like most of SoCal, cannot attract or keep major companies to be headquartered here.
