As of April 1st, 2014, Ground Up Logic is happy to call downtown Los Angeles home. Specifically, the building on the corner or 5th Street and S. Spring St.
The buildings history makes it interesting to work in- originally built as the Citizens National Bank building, the building was designed by architect John Parkinson and completed in 1914.
On July 26, 1914, the L.A. Times wrote:
“The building, which will, with its appointments, cost more than $1,000,000, was planned by Architects Parkinson and Bergstrom and is being built by the Commercial Fireproof Building Company, as owner… The big block will extend to the full height allowed by law and will have a frontage of 155 feet on Fifth Street by 115 feet on Spring. On the eleven upper floors will be 450 offices. The exterior will be handsomely faced with terra cotta and the interior is to be finished in marble and tile.”
