Macy's Plaza & Hyatt Regency Hotel

700 S Flower St. / 711 S Hope St

Built in 1972-1973 by Charles Luckman and Associates, the structure claims to be the first downtown enclosed "suburban" type shopping center in the United States. Until 1996, it was the Broadway Plaza; now it is Macy's. The photo on the left shows the old Broadway Plaza; the photo on the right shows the Hyatt Regency Hotel. The double, 32 story glass towers of the Hyatt Regency on the east, and the office building on the west sit atop Macy's. At the top of the Hyatt Regency is the obligatory round revolving restaurant.
