3. The Bradbury Building

Bradbury Building Downtown LA Untapped Cities

Even older than the Biltmore, the Bradbury Building was constructed in 1893 as a Victorian office building. A skylight allows sunlight to pour down and fill the lobby, which would otherwise be quite dark with all the brick and wrought iron inside. One of the original Victorian elevators still functions. The Bradbury Building was featured in many films, including Blade Runner, 500 Days of Summer and The Artist. It is the oldest commercial building remaining in LA’s center.
