Central Plaza | 3440, 3450, 3460, 3470 Wilshire Blvd – Los Angeles, CA.


Within 72 hours Parker had a signed contract, placing manpower, material and equipment on the job.

Central Plaza is a constant use high rise commercial office complex consisting of four twelve story buildings having retail stores and restaurants on the ground level. Built in 1952, in the early 1990s it was in need of a extensive exterior upgrade. As is the case on many large projects, after taking bids from numerous contractors the upgrade project was put on hold due to high cost, in excess of 1.3 million dollars. This project was shelved for close to two years until Jim Parker met with the owners construction manager. Within 72 hours Parker had a signed contract, placing manpower, material and equipment on the job.

Parker completed the project in minimal time, doing extra work painting the parking structure interior, line striping, painting stairwells, resealing the 3470 building windows, and providing a 20 year waterproof warranty. On Jan 17, 1994 the massive Northridge Earthquake struck causing hundreds of annealed glass windows to break in these buildings, fortunately most where tinted with inside film, saving glass shards from raining down. Again Jim Parkers’ company owned access equipment and crew saved the owner money and time by rapidly installing over $250,000 worth of new window glass at considerable cost savings.

All of the masonry curtain walls and ground level facia of these buildings where prepared, filled, a primus cement base coat was trowel applied, then a worm finish synthetic plaster was applied, lastly it was coated with a elastomeric coating. All unanodized window mullions where painted. All the exterior surfaces of all four buildings where coated and painted by Parker in 1993, as of February 2013 they have not been repainted. Twenty years of quality high use commercial service life with no coating failure. In fact the job looks as new. We can do the same for your project.
