Downtown Los Angeles is looking to attract more retail pop-up experiences to the market. Retail is one of the most robust asset classes in the Downtown market, and it led the submarket’s growth in the first quarter of the year. Now, the Downtown Central Business Improvement District is focusing on fueling more growth in the sector. It is rolling out a new initiative called Pop-up Connect to pair landlords with vacant spaces and retailers looking for pop-up space.
