Photo of the ARCO Center logo, located on Hope Street between 3rd and 4th streets, with U.S. Bank and Citibank visible in the middle of the photograph. The ARCO Plaza Towers, also known as Richfield Towers and Atlantic Richfield Plaza, (now City National Plaza) were once L.A.'s tallest, identical buildings, standing at 699 feet with 52 floors each. They were designed by Albert C. Martin and Associates and built in 1972-73, as the world headquarters for Atlantic Richfield Co. and the Southern California headquarters for Bank of America. The towers, now known as City National Tower and Paul Hastings Tower, encompassing an entire city block, with two-level subterranean shopping and one-level parking located below ground. Both towers are physically the same, except that City National Tower does not have a helipad on its roof, which is rare for a high-rise of that size in Los Angeles. Beacon Capital Partners purchased this property in 2002 for $269 million, and sold it in 2004 for $435 million. Photograph dated: February 2000.
