Douglas Building

The Douglas Building “was considered among Los Angeles’ greatest office buildings and commanded the highest rentals. In its early years, it housed the chief ticket office of the Southern Pacific Railroad.”  During that time, many travelers would have passed through its doors to purchase a ticket.

The Douglas Building is significant in the area of West Third Street, the former heart of Downtown, for several reasons: its association with Thomas Douglas Stimson, the Stimson Estate and the architects; and for its remarkable architectural design and structural system. Wholly restored, the Douglas Building its once again the pride of the neighborhood and certainly one of the most impressive buildings in Downtown.
