Eckbo’s Union Bank Plaza Landscape is SAVED!

On February 26, the Los Angeles City Council voted in support of a recommendation by the city’s Cultural Heritage Commission to make Union Bank Plaza the first downtown skyscraper to be designated a Historic-Cultural Monument. The council’s vote cemented the property’s status as a local historic landmark with a designation that includes Garrett Eckbo’s Modernist plaza, as well as the towering structure that rises from it.
