The 12-story Continental building, located at 4th and Spring Streets, was designed by John Parkinson and completed in 1904. The Continental was the first fully-representative building of Beaux-Arts style in Los Angeles, with rich ornaments of terra cotta, striking cornice bends, pediments, and lion heads on its facade. The building was the first skyscraper in Downtown Los Angeles, remaining the tallest building for over 50 years.

The Continental was redeveloped by Gilmore Associates into 56 lofts with a ground floor art gallery.
