Last weekend I took a free bus tour (& free parking!) of 6 downtown LA LOFT buidings & Los Angeles Condo Conversions sponsored by www.downtownla.com. It was a fabulous tour & extremely informative, well-run & even included pastries & coffee! The tour lasted 9 – 1 on Saturday morning. You can sign up on their website. Remember not to “register” at the buidings because you will be denied free use of your Realtor. I will be going again in September if anyone wants to join me (firstname.lastname@example.org or 323.769.3371) to see 6 different buidings. They started our tour at the new RALPHS – a huge beautiful supermarket new to downtown. It is actually the nicest supermarket I have EVER been in – wine-tasting, dry cleaner, full deli & salad bar, carving stations, coffee, pastries, sushi – clean & well laid out. Last month this supermarket was all over the news. They did $750,000 in business the 1st week (expecting to do $250,000). See quote below:
“More than a 1000 residents, workers and community leaders flooded the opening of the Ralphs Fresh Fare at Ninth and Flower streets on Friday, July 20, celebrating the return of the grocery store to Downtown after nearly six decades. The much-anticipated ribbon cutting at the 50,000-square-foot market is considered a major turning point in Downtown’s revitalization. With more than 10,000 people calling the immediate area home, demand for a full-service supermarket has been strong since the deal was inked more than four years ago.” DOWNTOWN NEWS
