An Architectural View of Los Angeles City Hall

Designed by John Parkinson, John C. Austin, and Albert C. Martin Sr., Los Angeles City Hall was completed in 1928. The building houses the mayor’s office, meeting chambers and offices of the Los Angeles City Council. For decades, City Hall towered over the downtown cityscape at 454 feet high. It was the only building to significantly exceed 150-foot height limit maintained by the city until 1957. Best of all, you can admire LA’s ever-changing skyline by visiting the 27th floor observation deck during public hours – weekdays from 9am-5pm – free of charge!
