The Wilshire Grand Tower, a $1 billion hotel and office complex scheduled to open next March in downtown Los Angeles will become the tallest building west of the Mississippi River,81 feet higher than nearby U.S. Bank Tower, which held the tallest building record since 1989.

The AP reports that yesterday, workers placed a 10-ton spire atop the Wilshire Grand Tower adding 160 feet to the 73-story building, making it 1,099 feet high.
