Event Summary

Though commercial real estate is not necessarily known for its speed, Downtown Los Angeles is slowly but surely experiencing a renaissance of both growth and perception. With a history of being known as a work-only Central Business District, with new supply of urban multifamily, employees have finally started to open up to the idea of living downtown. With 2,600 apartments in the pipeline, efforts are not slowing down. How successful have developers' initiatives to create a 24-7 urban center, and what challenges stand in the way of its continued transformation? Join us as we discuss the future of DTLA and strategize its success. Add to
