The Red Building consists of two towers that together contain 400,000 square feet built above a seven-story parking garage.

Completed in 2009, the LA Live Hotel and Residences is a 54-story, 1,001-room two-hotel hybrid tower. This skyscraper contains a JW Marriott and a Ritz-Carlton along with 224 residences in the Ritz Carlton condominium section of the tower. Constructed in 2008, it is the first building in Los Angeles to use a steel-plate shear wall design. This reduces the building's overall weight by 30% compared to poured concrete walls, increases window area and adds 20,000 square...
The 704,000 square foot building will house 71 courtrooms at Union and C streets. It will feature significant improvements in security, as well as better safety and improved access and efficiency for county residents. A pedestrian bridge connects the three-story lobby atrium to the nearby Hall of Justice, which will continue to be used for civil cases.
The new facility includes 24 courtrooms and 32 justice chambers. Herrick was responsible for designing the temporary shoring system that supported “the cube” during construction. The building is designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification, due to such innovations as the serrated facade, which maximizes views from the interior and cuts down on up to 50% of heat generated from solar rays.
