Ho­tel hits new heights

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

A new sky­scraper in down­town Los An­ge­les has be­come the tallest build­ing west of the Mis­sis­sippi River. Con­struc­tion work­ers on Satur­day placed a 10-tonne spire atop the Wil­shire Grand Tower. The spire adds 49m to the 73-storey build­ing. That makes it 335m high. That’s 25m higher than nearby US Bank Tower, which held the tallest build­ing record since 1989. The $1 bil­lion ho­tel and of­fice com­plex is sched­uled to open next March.
