There’s more than meets the eye in Downtown’s concrete jungle of freeways, skyscrapers, sculptures, and convention centers. From its wholesale flower market and fashion district to its historic landmarks and gallery-sponsored art walks, Downtown is where diverging interests converge in this star-studded city on the coast. Take the time to explore this seemingly-intimidating neighborhood and you’ll notice that it’s friendlier than expected —people are nice and public transportation is accessible. Downtown, everyone’s waiting for you. (Source Airbnb)
In mid-2013, Downtown was noted as “a neighborhood with an increasingly hip and well-heeled residential population.” Because of the downtown area’s office market’s migration west to Bunker Hill and the Financial District, many historic office buildings have been left intact, simply used for storage or remaining empty during recent decades. In 1999, the Los Angeles City Council passed an adaptive reuse ordinance, making it easier for developers to convert outmoded, vacant office and commercial buildings into renovated lofts and luxury apartment and condo complexes. As of early 2009, 14,561 residential units have been created under the adaptive reuse ordinance, leading to an increase in the residential population. With 28,878 residents in 2006 and 39,537 in 2008, a 36.9% increase, Downtown Los Angeles is seeing new life and investment. In 2009 Bottega Louie opened on the first floor of the historic Brockman Building on Grand Avenue and 7th Street. It contributed to the revitalization of Downtown LA by creating restaurant row, which has since brought numerous new restaurants and retail shops to the area. (Source Wikipedia)
