Bullock's Wilshire is one of the most magnificent expressions of Art Deco architecture in Los Angeles. Built in 1929 and designed by John and Donald Parkinson, Bullock's Wilshire rises from Wilshire Boulevard with class and strength. The building expresses its height with uninterrupted, vertical piers and recessed windows highlighted by copper detailing. Bullock's Wilshire appears taller than it actually is, heightened by the thin tower that rises from the mass of limestone.
