Los Angeles is the city of angels and celebrities. Now, it can add home of the tallest building in the western U.S. to that list.
"Oh my god, it's unbelievable, all of a sudden I think I'm in New York," said Bob Downey, a man who worked on L.A.'s original skyline in the 1970s.
The Wilshire Grand tower project began in 2012. The final touch to the 73-story building? A 10-ton spire.
