List of tallest buildings in Los Angeles

Downtown Los Angeles with San Gabriel Mountains in the background

This list of tallest buildings in Los Angeles ranks skyscrapers in Los Angeles, California, by height. The tallest building in Los Angeles is the Wilshire Grand Center, which became the tallest building in 2016.

The Wilshire Grand also stands as the tallest building in the state of California, tallest building west of the Mississippi, and the 9th-tallest building in the United States. Seven of the ten tallest buildings in California are located in Los Angeles.[1] The 73-story U.S. Bank Tower, which rises 1,018 feet (310 m) in Downtown Los Angeles and was completed in 1989,[2] is now the second-tallest building in Los Angeles.

The history of skyscrapers in Los Angeles began with the 1903 completion of the Braly Building, which is often regarded as the first high-rise in the city;[3] it rises 13 floors and 151 feet (46 m) in height.[4] The building, originally constructed as a commercial structure, has since been renovated into a residential tower and is now known as the "Continental Building".[3]

In 1924, Los Angeles imposed height restrictions throughout the city, effectively prohibiting the construction of any building taller than Los Angeles City Hall (454 ft/138 m). It was intended to address local concerns about growing congestion and overdevelopment at the time. That height limit was lifted in Downtown Los Angeles by the city government in 1957.

Los Angeles (and especially Downtown) then went through a large building boom that lasted from the early 1960s to the early 1990s, during which time the city saw the completion of 30 of its 32 tallest buildings, including the U.S. Bank Tower, the Aon Center, and Two California Plaza.[5] Modern skyscrapers are difficult and expensive to construct in Los Angeles due to the city's high rate of earthquakes and position near the San Andreas fault line, as well as the resulting difficulty of adhering to the city's rigorous engineering standards. Nevertheless, a number of successful and iconic skyscrapers dot the Los Angeles skyline from Downtown Los Angeles through Koreatown. Along the Wilshire Corridor, Miracle Mile and Century City areas of the cities westside. Other skyscraper hubs are hotels on Century Boulevard by LAX, the Hollywood district in central L.A. Warner Center, NoHo and Universal City in the San Fernando Valley. LA's west side has so many skyscrapers, often Wilshire Boulevard in the Westwood District, along with Century City's skyscrapers are often confused with being L.A.'s downtown by visitors arriving from LAX.

As of September 2017, Los Angeles has a total of 561 high-rise buildings over 115 feet (35 m),[6] 73 buildings over 300 feet (91.5 m);[7] 36 buildings over 400 feet (121.9 m); 15 buildings over 600 feet (183 m) in height including two supertalls over 1000 feet (305 m), the Wilshire Grand and US Bank Tower.[8][9][10] Its skyline is ranked 1st in the Pacific coast region and 3rd in the United States, after New York City, and Chicago.[note 1]
