TOPIC - Wilshire Grand Tower
The ASCE Orange County Branch would like to invite you to attend the December Luncheon Meeting for a presentation on the Wilshire Grand Tower that is under construction in Downtown Los Angeles. We are fortunate to have Raul provide an update on this signature tower. The $1 billion hotel/office complex, being developed by Korean Air, is about 85 percent finished and is scheduled to be completed next year.
The Wilshire Grand Center is an upscale world-class 73-story skyscraper in the heart of Downtown, Los Angeles. The Wilshire Grand Center will not only boast the 900-room InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown hotel, but also cutting edge restaurants, businesses, and attractive nightlife offerings. It will be the tallest structure in the Los Angeles skyline, adding to the rich cultural and economic revival of Downtown
