Downtown Los Angeles

Welcome to Downtown Los Angeles

Since the early 2000s, Downtown LA has been undergoing a rapid revitalization when an adaptive reuse ordinance was passed and made it easier for developers to convert and build new spaces. In 2007, further growth-spurring changes were made to the area’s zoning rules. Today, downtown represents one of LA’s fastest-growing neighborhoods.

Around the Block

A sprawling neighborhood that comprises a diverse range of districts, LA’s downtown has experienced a recent revitalization.

Additions like the Ace Hotel and the Broad Museum have transformed the area as a new hip destination for adventurous locals and tourists alike. Today, a blend of industrial sprawl, historic landmarks, tourist destinations, a growing arts district, upscale boutiques, and cutting-edge eateries characterize this livable urban hub, making it ideal for both work and play.

The Neighbors

Hardworking locals, professionals, artists, and creatives.

Despite downtown’s geographical expanse, it is one of the least populated areas in Los Angeles. An eclectic group is drawn to the plentiful artist lofts and upscale apartments in this region.

What to Expect

A convergence of gritty urban life and cosmopolitan chic.

During the day, downtown is the bustling hub of LA’s commercial heart. At night it becomes a hotspot for eating and drinking; its streets line with swanky rooftop bars featuring magnificent city views and renowned restaurants like Baco Mercat and Bestia.

The Lifestyle

A well-balanced blend of work and play.

People from all over the city come to eat, drink, and dance at downtown Los Angeles’ many restaurants, bars, and clubs. Divided between high-end and divey establishments, there’s nightlife to suit every type. Daytime attractions include the neighborhood’s bevy of museums and landmarks.

Unexpected Appeal

The Market

Urban lofts, luxury apartments, and condo complexes.

Downtown Los Angeles’ older buildings feature residential loft space above storefronts, while its recent growth has resulted in newly developed apartment buildings and contemporary condos.
