Miniatures in front of Sersen Lake Backdrop
The building miniatures were constructed and filmed on the Sersen Lake floor at the Fox Ranch in Malibu. The 138 story tower miniature is around 70 feet high.

L.B. Abbott's book "Special Effects - Wire, Tape and Rubber Band Style" has a complete chapter dedicated to the filming of effects for The Towering Inferno with an excellent colour section.
