- In a city not known for tall skyscrapers, this impressive structure is the indisputable centerpiece of the L.A. skyline. This, the tallest building west of the Mississippi River, stands 73-stories high and was designed in 1990 by the architectural firm of Pei, Cobb, Freed and Partners. It is perhaps most famous for being the first building destroyed by the aliens in the blockbuster movie Independence Day and features prominently in every contemporary L.A. skyline picture. Presently the building houses some of the most prestigious banking and law firms in town.
