The Continental Building, formerly Braly Block, is a 151 ft (46 m), 13-story high-rise residential building at 408 South Spring Street in the Historic Core of Los Angeles, California. When completed in 1903, it was the city's first high-rise building, and remained the tallest for three years. Shortly after the building was completed, the Los Angeles City Council enacted a 150 ft (46 m) height restriction on future buildings that remained until the 1950s.
The Continental Building is part of the Spring Street Financial District which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
