The owner of the Tribune Co. is putting the Los Angeles Times Mirror Square Complex up for sale, along with the 40-story Chicago Tribune building.  The Los Angeles Times building at the corner of First and Spring streets has served as the headquarters of the newspaper since 1935.

Designed by Gordon B. Kaufmann, the Moderne design won a gold medal at the 1937 Paris Exposition.  Kaufmann's best-known work is the Hoover Dam, to which he gave an elegant Art Deco style.  The interior of the Times building features soaring 10-foot high murals painted by Hugo Ballin, who also painted the rotunda at the Griffith Park Observatory and was regarded as the finest muralist in the 1930s.  In 1978, the Times building was listed in the California Register of Historic Places and is elegible for listing the National Register of Historic Places.
