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.

“We are going to be rolling out a program called Pop-up Connect, and it is essentially a pop-up service between vacancy retail spaces and pop-up businesses, whether they are a start-up business or an established brand that wants to do a temporary store,” Nick Griffin, SVP of economic development at the DCBID, tells GlobeSt.com. “We are creating a database of these spaces on our website, and we are promoting that list out to the retail community and the brand community. Then, we are helping to connect them to those people.”
