Los Angeles office landlord Maguire Properties Inc. more than doubled its loss in the fourth quarter of 2008 as it grappled with a softening commercial real estate market and wrote down the value of an Orange County building it hopes to sell.

Revenue was also down from a year ago but improved slightly from the third quarter, which was a spot of good news for the real estate investment trust that owns some of Southern California's most recognizable buildings, including the US Bank Tower in Los Angeles, the tallest building in the West.
