Taggers vandalize 27 floors of luxury Los Angeles high-rise left abandoned by Chinese developers

Taggers vandalized 27 floors of an abandoned luxury high-rise in Downtown Los Angeles and an investigation is underway. 

Video of the Oceanwide Plaza shows graffiti on nearly every level of the building, located on Figueroa Street. The structure is located near the Crypto.com arena, where the 2024 Grammy Awards will be held this Sunday. 

It’s not clear how many people were involved or how long the graffiti took.
