In 2005, the Downtown Neighborhood Council funded an Historic Resources Survey to identify historic or potentially historic buildings within their boundaries. Many downtown buildings have been designated historic on local, state and national registers. These properties include parking garages, former department stores, old banks, movie theaters, warehouses and a wide variety of other building types.The goal of this project was to create a comprehensive database of historic buildings in a format that can be easily accessed by the public.
The results of this project are:
The information contained within these documents is accurate to the best of the knowledge of the surveyors. Collection of data was conducted in 2006 and the on-the-ground survey was conducted between August 2006 and January 2007.

The Getty Conservation Institute is in the early stages of putting together a complete survey of the City of Los Angeles' historic resources. This survey will investigate all buildings in the city, not just those previously deemed historic.
