Tallest Buildings in Los Angeles County

The tallest building in Los Angeles County is the U.S. Bank Tower (formerly Library Tower)
in downtown Los Angeles at
633 West Fifth Street. With 73 floors, it stands at 1,018 feet in height.
It is the tallest building between Chicago (nation's tallest building, the Sears Tower in Chicago, offers
110 floors at 1,450 feet) and Southeast Asia (the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,
offers 88 floors at 1,483 feet). It is, in fact, the seventh tallest building in the United States and the
tallest outside Chicago, New York, and Atlanta (The Bank of America Building in Atlanta is a mere
six feet taller). The U.S. Bank Tower was once named "Library Tower" because developers provided
substantial funds for renovating the adjacent Los Angeles Central Library in exchange for "
air rights."
The building, designed by the architectural firm
Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, was completed in 1990.
It is designed to withstand
an 8.3 earthquake on the Richter Scale (called a "maximum possible event").
