Downtown Los Angeles offers a central location to live, work, dine and entertain. In 1999, the Los Angeles City Council passed an adaptive reuse ordinance, making it easier for developers to convert vacant office, industrial and commercial buildings into renovated lofts and luxury apartment and condo complexes
The Arts District’s new Loft-style apartments and condos in restored industrial buildings dot the landscape, but the Arts District is still home to a major rail yard, cold storage, warehouses, food processing, personal storage, government facilities, film locations and furniture and fashion design/manufacturing. It is also home to thousands of resident artists in live/work spaces that support creative entrepreneurial businesses and non-profits. In addition, the district is home to the Southern California Institute of Architecture, one of the premier architectural schools in the country.
South Park, a growing residential and entertainment neighborhood consisting of the new luxury high rise condominiums and lofts, The Los Angeles Convention Center, Staples Center and the mixed-use L.A. Live entertainment campus.
While there are currently numerous Live/Work Loft projects in downtown, the Toy Factory Lofts and Biscuit Company Lofts lead the path for residential condo development that transformed the neighborhoods. Other loft and condominium projects include Elleven, Luma, Evo and Grand Avenue Lofts.
There are many unique and small shops for downtown residents, but with a newly opened Target Store and Ralphs grocery, the downtown residents have access to large scale amenities making downtown more and more appealing to home owners who want a vibrant and thriving urban and creative living experience without sacrificing convenience.
