Multifamily and retail are carrying the renaissance in Downtown Los Angeles—and they are driving growth in other market sectors as a result. According to the latest quarterly report from the DCBID, multifamily occupancy grew 9.4%, up to 94% with rents up 4.1% to $3.06 per square foot and retail vacancy rates fell more than 14%, down to 4.1% with lease rates up 3.6% to $2.57 per square foot. These two asset classes faltered slightly in 2017, but have rebounded in 2018 and continued to fuel growth in the market overall.
