Tallest Building in Los Angeles from 1928-1964.

Los Angeles City Hall is the center of government in the city of Los Angeles, California. It is located in the Civic Center district of Downtown Los Angeles in the city block bordered by Main, Temple, 1st, and Spring Streets.

The building was designed by John Parkinson and Albert C. Martin, and completed in 1928. It has 32 floors and stands at 454 feet high. Due to seismic concerns, prior to the 1960s no building in Los Angeles was permitted to be taller than City Hall; therefore, from its completion in 1928 to 1964, it was the tallest building in Los Angeles. The building's distinctive top portion was based on the Mausoleum of Maussollos.
