Downtown LA’s Skyline Boom

Hosted by

The Wilshire Grand Tower is rising higher and higher over downtown LA.  It will soon be the tallest building West of the Mississippi--with 73 stories reaching an altitude of 1100 feet.  It’s being constructed by the Hanjin Group of South Korea.  KCRW’s Saul Gonzalez put on his hard hat and went to check on what’s next for a changing skyline.
