High-speed elevators, electrical ventilation and other state-of-the-art technologies of the day were just a few of the amenities implemented by the Trust’s architectural team, Parkinson & Parkinson. They even consulted with Dr. Ford Carpenter, a meteorologist from the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, who built a scale model of the structure’s design and placed it on-site, to help determine how shadows from neighboring buildings would affect the site. Using the data he collected, specialized materials were used in order to maximize the use of natural light while minimizing heat and the need for climate control within the building. Cutting-edge technologies set within a timeless art deco environment are what make the Trust Building one of Los Angeles’ most classic and unique edifices to this day.

“Perhaps the last domino to fall in the rebirth of Spring Street…the building [now] stands at the eye of the storm in a changing Downtown Los Angeles.”

Completed in 1928, it took less than two years and 2,500 tons of Los Angeles-made steel for the father-and-son architect team of John and Donald Parkinson to design and construct the Trust Building as it is known today. The ultra-modern 11-story, 300,000 square-foot office building would become known as the “Queen of Spring Street” during its heyday, housing Title Insurance and Trust Company’s 750 employees for the next 47 years. After changing hands a number of times over the decades – existing as Design Center of Los Angeles in the early 1980s, and housing the Los Angeles Central Library for a short period thereafter – the Art Deco structure is now being restored to its original architectural elegance, with a number of contemporary improvements.
“This next chapter of The Trust Building will be its most exciting yet, standing as a relic of DTLA’s illustrious past and a symbol of its vibrant future.”

E.W. Sargent -- Widely known as the “Father of land titles” in Los Angeles at the turn of the century, Edwin W. Sargent was the founder of the original Title Insurance and Trust Company. His institution, established in 1894, was originally located at 5th and Spring streets (now known as the Rowan building) and held record of over one million land parcels in Southern California. Due to a continued real estate boom in the region at the time, a larger facility was required for t...he Trust Company, prompting construction of a new headquarters just a short distance away – to what is known today simply as the Trust Building – at 433 S. Spring Street. E.W. Sargent is still recognized today for helping bring order to the ‘real estate chaos’ that plagued the region at the time and for playing an intrinsic role in the development of L.A. and its surrounding areas. The Trust Building still stands as a bold testament to his work and his company’s historic strength.
