10. Title Guarantee & Trust Building

Title Guarantee Building Downtown LA Untapped Cities

One of LA’s great examples of Art Deco architecture, the Title Guarantee & Trust Building was built in 1931 by the architects John and Donald Parkinson. The tower is characterized by its verticality, though the upper floors remain empty. Geometric flourishes adorn the terra cotta facade. The building was converted to private loft apartments, so unfortunately you can’t wander inside, but for a great close-up view of the tower, head up to Perch, the rooftop restaurant and bar in the Pershing Square Building.
