Downtown La (DTLA as locals call it)
We picked downtown LA for our new home for few reasons:
- It is very walkable which is unusual for LA and it means that I can go by without a car (I still haven’t got over my fear of driving which may be a serious problem).
- Downton is becoming a super cool destination and we really want to be part of it. Our building is round the corner from Ace Hotel, there is Acne Studios shop downstairs and Aesop store on the opposite side of the street. There is more and more shops, cafes and restaurant opening every month in DTLA. Everyone we spoke to is saying “DTLA is happing now” and we are very excited to witness it.
- Living in a loft was always our dream and believe it or not they are very affordable here (comparing to mega expensive London). DTLA offers a very affordable loft living as most buildings are converted into stylish lofts.
- The other reason was location; it has a good connections and couple of metro stations.
Anyway, these are few pictures I took today during my daily walk around
