Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business

Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
