9th and Figueroa Tower
During the building boom of the late 1980's and early 1990's, there was a proposal for what would have been Los Angeles' tallest building. Known as the 9th and Figueroa Tower, it would have eclipsed the height of the current tallest highrise, The US Bank Tower. The US Bank Tower was completed in 1989, has 73 floors, and stands at 1018 ft. The proposal for 9th and Fig Tower was designed to have 90 floors and stand at 1270 ft. However, in 1990 the project was canceled due to economic reasons. (if anyone has more information on this, please share). In the early 90's, Los Angeles had a glut of excess office space that only recently has been absorbed. Had this tower been built, it would stand where the Concerto Towers are currently under construction.
