Led by Los Angeles City Councilmember José Huizar, Bringing Back Broadway is an ambitious 10-year plan to revitalize the Historic Broadway corridor in downtown Los Angeles, a National Register Historic District. Goals are to provide economic development and business assistance; re-activate Broadway’s historic vacant theaters, as well as more than one million square feet of vacant commercial space and increase parking and transit options, including bringing the beloved streetcar back to downtown Los Angeles.

A3708-114Under the initiative, the area has already experienced a surge in new retail and restaurants, and is becoming a focal point for creative office and boutique hotel development with city policies aimed at creating flexibility for the reactivation of upper floor spaces.
