Korean Air, InterContinental to build hotel in L.A.
Korean Air is taking hospitality to another level by building the largest InterContinental hotel in North America.
"InterContinental is an international luxury brand like Korean Air, and we share the same vision," says Heather Cho, vice president of Hanjin International Corp.
When completed, the 73-story, 1,100-foot tall property will be the tallest building in the western United States. It is set to open in 2017.
The Wilshire Grand development also will house offices and retail space. The hotel, which will have 360-degree views of L.A., will have a sky-lobby on the 70th floor. The hotel itself will start on the 31st floor and reach floor 73.
