In Place: South Park DTLA

Set between Ninth Street, Broadway and the Harbor and Santa Monica Freeways, South Park is the busiest construction hub in booming Downtown LA. The area emerged a decade ago as Greater LA’s entertainment and sporting epicenter with the opening of Staples Center, followed by a sleek skyline of new residential towers.

Then came the billion-dollar L.A. Live entertainment mecca - a magnet for new restaurants, Club Nokia (now The Novo), the Conga Room, the Lucky Strike bowling alley and the Grammy Museum. Recently the towering Ritz-Carlton Residences and Hotel added a new exclamation point ... but the story of South Park is just beginning.

Our renowned urban residential sales and marketing partner, The Mark Company, played an advance role in shaping the area skyline, marketing early South Park towers Luma and Evo, The Ritz-Carlton Residences at L.A. Live and the nearby Barker Block in the Arts District. Aaroe Downtown experts Agnes Ferreyra and Jessica Robertson note that the appeal of South Park has continued to grow, “People love its modern buildings and posh amenities,” says Ferreyra. “New developments are bound to try to one-up each other, and that can only benefit consumers.” Robertson predicts, “South Park will soon be synonymous with luxury high rise living, DTLA style.”

Upscale condos aren’t the only living options in South Park. Fascinating residential lofts are being snapped up by countless buyers looking for more industrial surroundings. One light-filled penthouse in Grand Lofts on West 11th Avenue has just been listed at $940,000 by Aaroe agent Greg Stangl. Its 1,550+ square feet of live/work space is highlighted by fifteen-foot open ceilings, exposed industrial AC ducts and floor-to-ceiling walls of working double-paned windows.

Whatever your urban taste, South Park can deliver in style.
