A tall white building with a special architecture right in Downtown LA. It's a part of the civic center. Besides the municipality and other administrations this building houses and observation deck on the 27th floor for no admission fees.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
