Los Angeles: The historic Taft Building, a 12-story tower which once housed the office of Charlie Chaplin, is up for sale.
   
The building, located at the Southeast corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street, has been listed for sale by longtime owner Langer Meringoff Properties.
   
The 1680 building is expected to fetch as much as USD 30 million, a Hollywood Reporter said.
   
The tower was built in 1923 and over the years has housed the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the offices of Chaplin and Will Rogers.
   
The 119,046-square-foot property is about 80 percent occupied and is home to several entertainment and media companies, including production company Last Exit Productions and music talent agency Evolution Music Partners, among other.
   
The property is being marketed to buyers who would operate it as an entertainment office building, according to listing agent Kevin Shannon of CBRE Group. It was listed about a month ago.
