5500 Wilshire
Topped Out 9/8/09


                  Bearing steel studs topped out ahead of schedule and under budget, on this
                  major world class project.



                  The first and only of five major bearing steel stud projects in greater L.A.
                  that can make this claim.



                       Notwithstanding that this project is the most complex of the five:

                           • Fourth and Fifth floor units don’t stack
                           • By design many walls are not 90%, several don’t align vertically,
                              and others are curved
                           • Hundreds of red iron “sticks” (earthquake restraints) integrated
                              into angled stud walls


                       Given a great Team, the secret to world class performance is:

                                 • With the Developer:
                                           Legacy Partners Residential
