The building located at 444 South Flower Street in Los Angeles has gone by many names over the years since its construction in 1979~81. The 48-story structure was the fifth tallest building in the city when it was completed and still ranks twelfth overall, making a definite impression as part of the L.A. skyline. It has one time or other been called the Wells Fargo Bank Building, the 444 Plaza Building, and informally as the L.A. Law Building, owing to its role as the location for the 1986-1994 NBC drama known as "L.A. Law."
Today, however, it is a commercial office complex, housing BP/ARCO, Wells Fargo Bank, and Citicorp as its major tenants. The latter is now the title sponsor. The tower rises to a height of 627 feet, contains 25 elevators, and offers a leasable floor area of just over 891,000 square feet. The architect was Albert C. Martin & Associates, and the current owner of the building is Hines Interests Limited Partnership of Houston, Texas.
Citigroup Center is located in the Bunker Hill area of downtown Los Angeles at 444 South Flower Street, Los Angeles, California 90071-2901. It contains a popular retail plaza with three open-terrace levels, plus an elevated pedestrian sky-bridge that connects the building to the Westin Bonaventure Hotel.
