Originally opened in 1923 as Hollywoodâ€™s first high-rise office building, the Taft Building has always been a beacon for creatives in Los Angeles. With an authentic Beaux Arts facade and iconic sign on the northwest corner, the Taft Building is more than an office spaceâ€“ itâ€™s a place to be remembered.
If these Classical Revival walls could talk, they would spill the colorful tales of such industry influencers as Will Rogers, Charlie Chaplin, and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. A workspace for the first entertainment lawyers, publicists, agents, and casting companies, Hollywood has always called the Taft home.
The historic property rises 12 stories on the famed corner of Hollywood & Vine, a district that has fueled dreams of stardom from the golden age of Hollywood to today. An area originally famous for its concentration of entertainment industry offices, this is where Hollywood legacies begin.
