The building above at 3415 S. Sepulveda Blvd., was one of the first staked out by World Wide Rush, the Pennsylvania company that challenged the constitutionality of L.A.’s ban on off-site and supergraphic signs and convinced a Federal Court judge last year to enjoin the city from enforcing those laws against the company’s signs.  The  building that overlooks the 405 freeway is home to the West L.A. office of the city’s Housing Department, so in addition to revenue from the supergraphics, the building owner is getting rental income from the city.
