Wilshire Grand

Korean Airlines

Los Angeles, CA

The Wilshire Grand Project will be an iconic addition to the visual character of the downtown Los Angeles skyline and to the renaissance of downtown Los Angeles.

The hotel/office tower is configured to maximize views of Santa Monica, the Pacific Ocean and LA’s acclaimed sunsets to the southwest and the Hollywood Hills and the San Gabriel Mountains to the north, particularly breathtaking during the clear winter months. The vistas from hotel rooms and office space will be spectacular both day and night with floor-to-ceiling glass to take full advantage of views and allowing the spaces to be filled with natural light. This will be the first significant building in Los Angeles to have this feature. From an external point of view, this plays well as the Wilshire Grand is literally surrounded by existing buildings that are composed of granite with inset windows. This more glassy expression will portray the building as being “of our time,” a unique contrast to its neighbors.
