WILSHIRE GRAND CENTER

Location: 900 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90017

Size: 1,500,000 sf

Developer: Martin Project Management

Contractor: Turner Construction Company

Architect: AC Martin Partners, Inc.

In the heart of downtown Los Angeles, the new Wilshire Grand Center rises, the tallest building west of the Mississippi. It was Korean Airlines’ (developer/anchor tenant) vision to create an iconic tower - a symbol of the friendship between South Korea and the U.S. The InterContinental Hotel and office tower is configured to maximize views of Santa Monica, the Pacific Ocean and LA’s acclaimed sunsets to the southwest and the Hollywood Hills and the San Gabriel Mountains to the north. Los Angeles’ energy and vibrancy is literally at the building’s feet - allowing guests and visitors to tap into the Metro system and the city’s vast freeway network to explore. The hotel design embodies three main organizing criteria: 1) Shape the project around LA’s unique climate by blurring the line between indoors and out, maximize natural light and vistas; 2) Seamlessly tap into DTLA’s transformative character; 3) Offer visitors a collection of workplaces and leisure spaces that included the plaza below and the ‘city in the sky’ above.
