Mutual Benefit Plaza, 1978

Looking southeast down Wilshire Boulevard towards the Mutual Benefit Life Plaza; a few storefronts are seen directly west of the office complex. Located at 5900 Wilshire Boulevard and completed in 1971, the plaza includes a 32-story office building and two smaller buildings designed by William L. Pereira. The building served as the headquarters for Mutual Benefit Life until their bankruptcy in 1991. It was later known as the “Variety” building and is now know as the “SBE” building.
