Welcome to City National Plaza, a premier CommonWealth Partners property!

As one of the nation’s largest high-rise office developments, City National Plaza (formerly ARCO Plaza) encompasses over 2.6 million square feet on a 4.2 acre super-block at 5th and Flower Streets in the central business district of downtown Los Angeles. Designed by noted Los Angeles architect Albert C. Martin Associates, the project was the first major business center in the heart of the financial district and has shaped the downtown Los Angeles skyline for over thirty years.

Completed in 1972 as the world headquarters for Atlantic Richfield Corporation, City National Plaza consists of two 52-story office towers, a three-story central plaza level building and four subterranean levels. Covered in polished panels of Vermont Green granite and solar bronze glass, the towers rise 700 feet above street level and establish a sophisticated environment for this centrally located business center. The main plaza is accentuated by its central fountain and the Herbert Bayer sculpture “Ascension” while lower level retail provides a variety of restaurants, shops, services and other amenities frequented by the projects’ tenants as well as those visiting, living and working in Downtown.

City National Plaza bridges the Bunker Hill and South Park business and residential districts to reinforce Los Angeles' stature as one of the world's most dynamic cities. Within a two-block radius of the property are amenities including first class hotels and restaurants, the Central Library and Gardens, the Stuart M. Ketchum Downtown YMCA, as well as the Jonathon Club and California Club, both of which are located across the street to the West and East respectively.

CommonWealth Partners continues the renaissance of City National Plaza as the premier office project in downtown Los Angeles. Our vision is to provide a safe, spotless, and superbly managed project, and to maintain our commitment to provide you and your employees with an array of diverse amenities and high quality services.

This book is designed to help you discover all of the services available at City National Plaza. Each section covers the information on building services, Property Management Office contact information and details on how to respond to emergencies.
