Los Angeles Department of Water and Power

Hi Everyone!

I'm extremely new to typophilia and Typophile, but I'm hoping that this community can help me solve a font identification problem that is driving me nuts.

Many public buildings in the Los Angeles area use the font in sign I've pasted below. I always notice it on the side of one particular Los Angeles Department of Water and Power building.

I've used a bunch of online identification tools, including whatthefont and identifont, but neither of them came up with anything close.

Any ideas?
