Add the Taft Building, built in 1923 for A. Z. Taft Jr. by architects Walker and Eisen, and Hollywood's first high-rise building. In Hollywood's golden age all the studios and stars had offices there, including Charlie Chaplin and Will Rogers. From 1935 to 1945 it was home to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences offices. But it has the feel of old Manhattan.

A few feet west, the Guaranty Building, a Beaux Arts office building from 1923, designed by John C. Austin, and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, but obviously repurposed
