    5 workers atop the spire of the new Wilshire Grand Center in Downtown Los Angeles, 1,099 ft above the ground.
    Now officially the tallest building west of the Mississippi River.

    I still think counting spires is complete bullshit, it should be height of the last useable floor and roof.

    They shouldn't count poles, I could have a one story building and put a 1200 foot pole and have the tallest building in LA

    It's like when the Petronas Towers stole the title from the U.S. with shorter buildings with taller spires.


    Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) and the World Trade Center towers were each constructed with 110 occupied floors – 22 more than the 88 floors of the Petronas Towers. Willis Tower's tallest antenna is 75.41 m (247.4 ft) taller than those of the Petronas Towers, however, in accordance with CTBUH regulations and guidelines, the antennas of Willis Tower were not counted as part of its architectural features. The spires on the Petronas Towers are included in the height since they are not antenna masts. Therefore, the Petronas Towers exceed the official height of Willis Tower by 10 m (33 ft) even though the roof of Petronas Towers at 378.6 metres (1,242 ft) is 63.4 m (208 ft) lower than the roof of Willis Tower at 442 metres (1,450 ft).
