Construction has begun on the Wilshire Grand “Crown Sail.” The crown sail will extend above the 73rd floor approximately 100 feet. Once the bulk of the steel for the sail has been erected and welded off, the spire erection will begin.
The tentative date for the spire erection is the fall of 2016.
The architectural spire atop the building is approximately 258 feet tall and will extend above the top of the “Crown Sail” by approximately 173 feet.
