Aspire to the Sky - The Wilshire Grand Story
Available on Prime Video, Tubi TV, Amazon Freevee
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, make the Wilshire Grand one of the most original buildings recently completed in North America. Architects and engineers: making the impossible possible.
