Occupying the city section of Hill Street, Los Angeles Street, Third Street, and Olympic Boulevard is the delightful neighborhood known as the Historic Core. Before the end of World War II, the Historic Core was the center of the city. After the war, the entire downtown area entered into a general decline with not only residents but the entire financial district moving out of the area as well. The Historic Core experienced a notable demographic shift during the 1950’s when it became the center of Latino entertainment in the city. The Million Dollar Theatre, for example, featured the biggest Spanish language names in the entertainment world. With the paralleling flight of white residents to outer suburbs, Broadway became a major center for Latino life in the city.
With the Adaptive Re-Use Ordinance passed by the City of Los Angeles in 1999, developers were given new flexibility allowing for the conversion of old, unused office buildings into varying types of apartments and lofts. Some of the most notable redevelopment projects in the Historic Core include the converted lofts near Main and Spring Street, now known as the “Old Bank District”, the Higgins Building, The Security Building, The Pacific Electric Building, The Judson, and The Subway Terminal Building.
Some of the best things to do in the Historic District today include checking out Grand Central Market, Art Walk Lounge, the Bradbury Building, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Grand Park, and Little Tokyo. Being easily accessible from just about anywhere in the city, the Historic Core is also one of the best places in L.A. to get your MobileWash.
