Bunker Hill Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood District
Bunker Hill is a neighborhood in the Northwest corner of Downtown Los Angeles historically based on a high-elevation landform that extends above the surrounding terrain that separated Downtown Los Angeles from the rest of the city to the west before the hill was tunneled through at Second Street in 1924.
The neighborhood is known for the several large performing arts centers, The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, and the neighborhood’s luxury condo buildings, most prominently, the Bunker Hill Tower. There are several other condominium buildings in Bunker Hill with condo units for sale and for lease as well. New homes are under construction nearby.
The once-grand Victorian mansions of Bunker Hill fell eventually fell into disrepair and blight as Downtown declined in stature in the mid 1900s. In the late 20th century, the hill was lowered by excavation, and the area was redeveloped to replace old buildings with modern high-rises and other structures for residences, commerce, entertainment, religion and education.
Today, with the beautified Grand Park, new Broad Museum, convenient underground Metro subway station, Bunker Hill is a vibrant part of Downtown’s arts and residential communities. The Walk Disney Concert Hall, Center Theater Group and rebuilt Angel’s Flight tramway attract large numbers of tourists.
