History[edit] Patriotic Hall was built in 1925 and the building opened its doors in 1926 to serve the public. When it was built, the 85,000-square-foot (7,900 m2) building was the tallest building[2] in the city. Design[edit] The building was designed by Allied Architects Association (33 prominent architects in Los Angeles) using Romanesque features. The lobby was designed with vaulted arch construction and contains murals on the walls.[3][4] Awards[edit] A certificate of Honor has been awarded for its exceptional merit by the Southern California Chapter of the American Society of Architects. The building was built on land deeded by Civil War veterans.[2] Other notable events[edit] Arianna Huffington hosted a Shadow convention in Patriotic Hall while the Democratic National Convention took place in Staples Center[5]

The renovations included: Updated mechanical systems ADA upgrades, including new parking stalls Updated meeting, conference and office spaces Refurbished gym 500-seat auditorium Full-service kitchen The renovated Patriotic Hall was completed in 2013 at a cost of $46 million.[6] The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs moved back in on August 26, 2013.
