Historic Core Downtown Los Angeles
The Historic Core is a neighborhood in Downtown Los Angeles between Hill and Main streets on the west and east, and 3rd and 9th streets on the north and south. The district overlaps with the Jewelry District on its western end and Skid Row on its eastern end.
The Historic Core was the center of the city before World War II. With the general decline of downtown after World War II, and the movement of all financial institutions several blocks to the west, ending up on Figueroa Street, Flower Street, and Grand Avenue, the area suffered. This came with the abandonment of Downtown by middle and upper income residents occurring in Downtown Los Angeles at the time.
In 1999, the Los Angeles City Council passed an Adaptive Re-Use Ordinance, allowing for the conversion of old, unused office buildings to apartments or lofts. Developer Tom Gilmore purchased a series of century-old buildings and converted them into lofts near Main and Spring streets, a development now known as the Old Bank District. Other notable redevelopment projects in the Historic Core have included the Higgins Building, The Security Building, the Pacific Electric Building, The Judson, and the former Subway Terminal Building, now known as Metro 417.
