There are so many reasons why more and more people are now calling Downtown Los Angeles home. Over the past few years, the heart of L.A. has experienced a major revitalization. In the not-so-distant past, DTLA was actually considered a ghost town. When the clock struck five and offices shut down for the day, urban professionals would hop in their vehicles and head out to the suburbs. It was a place people commuted to, rather than resided in.

Now, all that’s changed. From globally acclaimed restaurants to luxury residential towers, it’s fast become the hottest place to live -- and for good reason.

If you’re thinking about making the move but are still weighing the pros and cons, here are a few reasons to start packing your bags and heading down to this sought-after center of L.A.

1. Say Goodbye to Commuting

It probably comes as no surprise that L.A. ranks as the number one most stressful commute in the United States. Workers spend an average of 53.68 minutes commuting in L.A. every single day – approximately four minutes higher than the national average of 49.1 minutes.

What would you do with an extra hour each day? When you live in close proximity to your office, you’ll never have to deal with the infamous L.A. traffic again. Plus, you’ll save money in gas, car maintenance, and parking, all while burning those extra calories by walking or biking to work.

2. Opportunity Knocks

If you’re on the hunt for a great paying job with a well-known company, look no further than DTLA. Tourism, entertainment, and tech are all booming industries that are looking to hire exceptional talent. Like many Angelenos, business owners have become charmed by the new, revitalized downtown. Add in affordable rents and unique Art Deco commercial buildings, it’s become a new destination for job seekers alike.

3. Wine and Dine at Award-Winning Eateries

Many credit the food scene for kick-starting DTLA’s revitalization. Tourists, locals, and foodies all flocked by the thousands to dine on unique and progressive menus. From culinary stars recognized with the prestigious James Beard award to features in Rolling Stone Magazine, you’ll be able to taste flavors unlike anywhere else.

4. Stay Inspired

Art is in every corner of Downtown Los Angeles. Whether it’s street murals or curated pieces in the museums, you’ll never run out of beautiful inspiration. This includes The Broad, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the GRAMMY Museum!

If music is more your thing, you’ll likely find yourself spending time at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, home to one of the world’s preeminent orchestras. In addition, you can catch the biggest names in the ‘biz at the Staples Center and LA Live, which are both just a couple blocks from our luxury tower, Hope + Flower.

5. Luxury Living

With an influx of artists, chefs, and companies moving to DTLA, it’s only natural that residential towers are being constructed at a rapid pace. For those looking to live in the area but don’t want to compromise on space, design, or comfort, they won’t be hard-pressed to tick off their boxes.

This includes the highly anticipated Hope + Flower, two beautifully designed modern towers located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles' entertainment core. These lavish residences are complete with contemporary finishes and stunning amenities, all steps from the Convention Center, LA LIVE, Staples Center, and more.
