“Aspire to the Sky: The Wilshire Grand Story” is a documentary about the tallest building on the west coast at 1100 ft with a 180 ft spire. Soaring buildings in Los Angeles are difficult to find because of the risk factors associated with a highly seismically active zone, fire potential, and liquefaction soils covering much of the city. This one-acre lot now supports 22 acres of office and hotel space that changed the Los Angeles skyline. Art and engineering merge to create a design spectacle unique in high rise technology, making The Wilshire Grand one of the most original buildings recently completed in North America. Architects and engineers: making the impossible possible.
