Downtown Real Estate Market Overview

Once a postapocalyptic-like landscape for both the shifty and the brave, downtown has completely reinvented itself in the past few years. People actually live here now, without fear, taking up residence in refurbished lofts rooted in old-school Los Angeles history. In turn, the food scene has upped the ante for the entire city. Some of the best restaurants in town live firmly in the east side - Bestia and Baco Mercat..., to name a couple. It's undeniably L.A.'s cultural hub; you can't throw a stone without hitting an art gallery. But old downtown still peeks through in the bustling stalls at Grand Central Market and the sweet deals at the LA Flower Market. View more
