Los Angeles, CA
The Times' editorial, business and administrative departments as well as most pre-press operations are located at a six-building complex in downtown Los Angeles encompassing an entire city block.
The Times offers tours of the Editorial operation, and the state-of-the-art Olympic plant in Los Angeles.
In 1999, the presses were retrofitted to accommodate narrower, 50-inch-wide newsprint. This change reduces the amount of newsprint The Times uses while providing readers with an easy-to-handle page size.
The Olympic Plant
Named after the nearby Olympic Blvd., the Olympic Plant was built at a cost of $230 million and began operating in June 1990.
