High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The US Bank Tower, formerly the Library Tower and First Interstate Bank World Center, is a skyscraper located at 633 West Fifth Street in downtown Los Angeles. It is the tenth-tallest building in the United States, the tallest North American skyscraper west of the Mississippi River, the tallest building in California, and the tallest building with a helipad on the roof (this is required by the city building code). Rising 1,018 feet (310 m) in height, it is also the 39th-tallest building in the world as of December 2009. Until the construction of Taipei 101, it was also the tallest building in a major active seismic region; its structure was designed to resist an earthquake of 8.3 on the Richter scale. It consists of 73 stories above ground and two parking levels below ground. Construction began in 1987 with completion in 1989. The building was designed by Henry N. Cobb of the architectural firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners and cost $350 million to build. It is one of the most recognizable buildings in Los Angeles, often used in establishing shots for the city in films and television programs.
