On November 7, the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce hosted the fifth annual State of L.A. Infrastructure in Downtown Los Angeles. The half-day summit, which took place at Hotel Indigo, convened executives, leaders, and policymakers of the city’s largest corporations and government agencies to address the future of infrastructure investment as Los Angeles prepares for the world stage in 2028. The event featured panels on energy, digital and land and air infrastructure, as well as insights into L.A. infrastructure during the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Korean Air and Wilshire Grand Center was selected as the recipient of the first Leadership in Corporate Sustainability Award, which honored the organization for working collaboratively to advance sustainable regional infrastructure. Cushman & Wakefield occupies the 24th and 25th floors of the property in addition to providing management, engineering, and office leasing services for the 2.1-million-square-foot commercial development, which is the tallest building west of the Mississippi River and the newest and most prominent skyscraper downtown. General Manager Toni Reed and Chief Engineer Luis Hernandez were in attendance to receive the inaugural award. Congratulations!
