Downtown LA skyline against bright blue sky

Can you think of any spot hipper and more happening than Downtown Los Angeles (DTLA)? We'll wait, because while you're thinking, downtown is continuing its transformation into one of the most modern and forward-focused communities in the country, so much so that DTLA luxury apartments have become an amazingly hot ticket item. Let's explore...

Not The DTLA You Think You Know

As most know, Downtown Los Angeles is a primary business hub for the city. It's always been busy, but recent developments have given the area something of a renaissance. Old buildings transformed into residences, updates to the rail system, changes in zoning and development, and investment from developers have put DTLA on the upswing, and there's plenty in the area to attract potential residents, enough that the population has jumped from 27,849 to 52,400 since the year 2000.

DTLA is separated into several distinct districts:

  • Arts District: Home to a number of galleries, studios, and graphics/advertising firms.

  • Bunker Hill/Grand Avenue: The hub of many corporations and home to a great many cultural attractions.

  • Chinatown: It's Chinatown! There's one in every major city, not much explaining to do here.

  • Civic Center: The heart of city government, home to a number of city, state, and federal offices, along with courthouses and monuments.

  • Fashion District: The locus of style, home to designers, stylists, clothing enthusiast, and much more.

  • Figueroa Corridor: The University Of Southern California is located here, along with several museums and parks.

  • Flower District: As the name suggests, you'll find lots of flowers here, just about any kind imaginable, all at very reasonable prices.

  • Gallery Row: More galleries, more artwork, more culture. It's no exaggeration that DTLA is on a high-class come up.

  • Historic Downtown: This is the former heart of the city, before World War II. You'll find plenty of old-school architecture and historic buildings in this walk down memory lane.

  • The Jewelry District: Looking for wholesale jewelry? There are more than 5,000 here in DTLA's Jewelry district, complete with all the highly discounted jewelry you could ask for.

  • Little Tokyo: A mashup of small and large businesses, complete with a great number of Japanese-American cultural museums and centers.

  • Olvera Street: The so-called "birthplace of L.A.," this area boasts a number of markets, cafes, landmarks, and more.

  • South Park: Entertainment and other venues galore. South Park is the place to go for grand amusements, along with its own burgeoning residential area.

  • Wholesale District: Fish and produce by the bucket. This is the place to go for freshness.

Each has its own flavor, its own charm. All are uniquely Los Angeles and are home to plenty of unique attractions.

The Music Center and Walt Disney Concert Hall, for instance, some of the best spaces for live performances, and home to the LA Opera. For a walk down the annals of music history, the Grammy Museum has clips, exhibits, and memorabilia that highlights some of the most pivotal moments in the developments of 20th-century music.

Now, to explore all these highlights, you'll need your own base of operations in the city...
