Downtown Los Angeles CA Beginnings
In 1781, 44 settlers founded “El Pueblo de La Reina de Los Angeles,” The town of the Queen of Angels. By the 1880s, a land boom drew midwesterners to the area and businesses such as the Biltmore Hotel, came to the downtown. The city’s limit on building height was lifted in 1957, encouraging the development of skyscrapers. Nonetheless, many businesses left the area, attracted to business parks and malls elsewhere. In the mid 1990s, developers began renovating many of the historic buildings for residential use. The Downtown Center Business Improvement District founded in 1998 continues to work to make the area a great place to live, work and play.
The district’s “purple patrol” is a team of safety and maintenance officers who assist those who work, live and visit the area.
