LOS ANGELES (AP) — A new skyscraper in downtown Los Angeles has become the tallest building west of the Mississippi River.

Construction workers on Saturday placed a 10-ton spire atop the Wilshire Grand Tower . The spire adds 160 feet to the 73-story building. That makes it 1,099 feet high.

That's 81 feet higher than nearby U.S. Bank Tower , which held the tallest building record since 1989.

The Wilshire Grand still has some construction work scheduled. The $1 billion hotel and office complex is scheduled to open next March.
