Wilshire Grand Hotel demolished

The L.A. landmark opened in 1952 as the Statler Hotel and attracted such luminaries as President John F. Kennedy and Pope John Paul II. It was demolished earlier this year to make way for a 73-story Korean Air skyscraper, which is expected to open by 2017 and become the tallest building west of the Mississippi.
