The San Francisco building would be part of the Transbay Terminal, which would also feature a park and a hub for a number of mass transit lines, included the proposed California High-Speed Rail, which travel to Los Angeles in 2 1/2 hours. [NBC 11]

When called for comment, Library Tower said it had no plans to buy a sports car, and refused to be envious “of a city with buildings that commonly wears socks and sandals.”

  1. Quick, put a super tall antennae with pigeon sculpture on top as we have to keep the “tallest building west of the Mississippi” here in LA.

  2. This could be good for LA. In the future, when the government wants to fearmonger about terrorism involving the tallest building in California, we’ll be left out of the hyperbole.
