    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.
