The exact spot where Carla got into her car is now covered by the Park Place Condominiums. At the time of filming it was just a large parking lot. The two buildings seen in the background are the Century Plaza Towers. They can also be seen in the end credits of Die Hard. Nakatomi Plaza (Fox Plaza) is directly across the street, on the other side of Avenue of the Stars.
