FROM THIS EPISODE

There's a new supertall building in town. If you've been anywhere near downtown LA, even miles away, you've seen it go up. The Wilshire Grand Tower topped off a couple of months ago, becoming the tallest building west of the Mississippi River at 1,100 feet, and among the tallest in the United States. DnA's Frances Anderton went to the 73rd floor with architect Chris Martin to learn more.
