This is the oldest, active commercial building in central Los Angeles. Not much to look at from the outside it has an amazing interior - a sun bathed inner court with bird-cage elevators, marble paneling, ironwork and Mexican floor tiles. It has been featured in many movies including Blade Runner and Double Indemnity.Recommended for:

Movie magic! This place is so, so beautiful inside. It's probably best known as a set for Bladerunner, but has been used for a bunch of other movies and TV shows. The interior atrium goes all the way up, surrounded by intricate filigree cast-iron staircases and railings. So glad I got to see this place IRL.Recommended for:

What you see is VERY VERY gorgeous, but there just isn't much to see as all the floors are restricted except for the ground floor. Visitors cannot go up the stairs and they cannot open doors either as it's still a commercial building. But man, walking into the building will take your breath away.

If you are a fan of architecture, this is highly recommended - hands down the most interesting building in Los Angeles. The inside of the building is something that came out of Orson Welles' imagination. Go around mid - day to late afternoon; at this time you will be able to see the sunlight fliter through 2 feet of a special marble that was imported from South America (Argentina I believe) at the time it was built - providing a glowing effect. A building designed for the future in the late 1800s.

Built in 1893 by the mining billionaire Bradbury, this building represent an architectural landmark in LA. It is in Downtown and its architecture feature an Italian Renaissence Revival style. There is a big atrium in the center naturally lit. Ornamental iron, polished wood and rich marble make this building luxurious and fascinating. It is nowadays the headquarter of the police department.
