In downtown Los Angeles, a new skyscraper has emerged to become the tallest building west of the Mississippi river.
The building, known as the 'Wilshire Grand Tower,' had a 10-ton spite placed on top of it on Saturday which added 160 feet to the 73 story building and officially made it the tallest in the West at 1,099 feet high.
What the building will be used for
The monstrous structure which cost one billion dollars to build, will be a hotel and office complex and is scheduled to open next March, in 2017.
There is still some construction work scheduled to be completed before then.
The Wilshire Grand is 81 feet higher than the U.S. Bank Tower, which has held the record for the tallest building in the West since 1989. It's also located nearby in L.A.
