New apartment construction in Los Angeles is concentrated in Downtown Los Angeles. According to a report from JLL, 1,816 apartment units delivered in the market in 2018, and another 3,258 units are planned to deliver in 2019 and 1,310 in 2020, creating a total pipeline of 6,384 units. This construction pipeline is significantly larger than any other Los Angeles submarket. North Los Angeles came in second with 4,583 units scheduled for delivery through 2020.

“Various factors have made downtown a prime area in Los Angeles for multifamily development,” Peter Belisle, southwest market director at JLL, tells Globest.com. “The market faces less building restrictions and organized community opposition than other cities. Downtown has also undergone a major transformation over the last 10-year and the population has doubled. DTLA is a now place where people want to live and offers world class entertainment and cultural venues. It’s no longer just a place to work.”
