Says the location website:

The Herald Examiner Los Angeles filming location has over 15 standing sets and offers another 30 different looks.

Once inside the Herald Examiner, you’ll find that many of your location needs can be met by the variety of looks and sets offered, including: Police Stations, a variety of Office Spaces, a Jail, a Bar, Hotels, Apartments, Warehouses / Industrial, Tunnels, Rooftop views, a Construction Zone, and of course, the Historical Grand Lobby.

Ample space for base-camp and parking, a rarity for a downtown LA filming location
The location is completely fenced in and has ample space for base camp and parking, which is rare to find in downtown Los Angeles. We have successfully worked with all types of projects, from big to small.

We pride ourselves on working with the industry to help keep production in Los Angeles.
