Most of the roads in the Downtown area started as single family, residential streets. The map begins with Calle Principal ( Main Street) and goes west. East of Main was the floodplain for the river. That land was generally developed later. The surveyor himself is commemorated by Ord Street in Chinatown. As Ord crosses Alameda, you can look up and see an iconic Los Angeles landmark: Phillipe’s. The following ditty has been around for years and helps us to remember the street layout: From Main, we Spring to Broadway over the Hill to Olive. Wouldn’t it be Grand to Hope to pick a Flower on Figueroa? Going north to south, there are some other interesting notes.

“It’s the bell cow,” said Austin Beutner, who during his time as a top deputy to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa oversaw the deal for the city. Beutner is currently running for mayor. “They are a market leader,” Beutner continued.“ I’ve personally gotten many phone calls from Chairman Wang and his colleagues to introduce me to other CEOs in Shenzen who’d like to talk about Los Angeles and the opportunity.” Corridor Comeback BYD, which stands for Build Your Dreams, was founded At a ceremony at 1800 S.

Contact Ryan Vaillancourt at ryan@ downtownnews. com. “Everyone questioned us when we came in,” Goldberg said.“ I’m like, can you just give us some time?” “This good faith effort to turn it around is really making a big difference,” Vernon said. Goldberg said he’s been under fire since day one, from wary city department heads to tenant advocates. The skepticism, he said, is natural considering the Huntington’s shadowy history. Still, he hopes to distance himself from the former owner. “By the time we resolve with this owner, I’m very confident that we’ll come up with the rents,” Babazadeh said.“ We don’t want this property owner to get caught with noncompliance. This property owner really doesn’t appear to us to be a slumlord.” While the rents have sparked suspicion from some, the other changes have earned Goldberg instant credibility from one key stakeholder: The LAPD. Lt. Paul Vernon said that since Goldberg and his partners acquired the building, there has been a notable drop in ...

At 800 W. Olympic Blvd., ( 213) 765-7084 or wolfgangpuck. com. On Target : Famed chef Wolfgang Puck has his hands all over Los Angeles and, in Downtown, all over L. A. Live. His most talked-about current spot is WP24 on, you guessed it, the 24th floor of the Convention Center hotel. They roll out the party plates come the holidays, but it’s not the only venue where you can get your Puck on.

It offers not just a view of South Park, but also access to the museum, where you can check out a range of interactive exhibits ( be sure to take in the current James Brown and George Harrison shows).

Villa, who led the rebel’s northern army, can be seen on his white horse with a charro hat and his rifle to his side. Another image shows him riding his horse at full gallop.
