That's a lot of ad placement in those pictures. A little too much.

There aren't that many in downtown, but add the all of the towers along Wilshire (like 15 miles of them) plus Century City (L.A.'s second downtown) and places in the Valley, it would be an impressive downtown indeed.

10 of those in the pic are over 200m. They may look small in the photo.

The Beckhams Score a Stunning Space

By Sean Borg
December 3, 2007

Looks like British import David Beckham has plans to stay in sunny California. The L.A. Galaxy star has plunked down $8 million for a luxurious loft space in the Ritz-Carlton Residences at L.A. Live, a testament to “ultramodern style living” that is currently being built downtown. Sounds just like Posh’s taste!



Their opulent 3000-square-foot pad on the 18th floor of the tower overlooks the adjacent Staples Center and the new Nokia Center, as well as the entire L.A. skyline. David, Victoria and their three boys will share the building (which features 224 extravagant condos and 52 stories of hotel rooms) with big names, including Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and basketball star Kobe Bryant. For a cost of $20,000 per month, high-rise dwellers will have access to five-star amenities and services.

This is the Beckhams second West Coast home. They already own a $9 million spread in Beverly Hills that Victoria selected before the family moved to the United States in July.
