#TBT Last month we had the lovely Genevieve from The Style Sauce and her adorable pup take our Instagram account hostage to share what it’s like to spend a day of shopping and eating out at District La Brea. It was definitely a fun-filled day. For more behind-the-scenes, follow on Instagram @DistrictLaBrea.
Who should we hand our @DistrictLaBrea reins over to next?
TV host and Lifestyle Blogger Cassidy Gard recently partnered with Yellow Pages for their #MakeEverydayLocal Campaign. Cassidy featured her favorite design stores in Los Angeles including A+R and Nick Metropolis at #DistrictLaBrea.
Over the past 4 years, the District La Brea project has undergone a complete overhaul. The 11 buildings between 1st & 2nd Streets along La Brea Avenue have been redevelopment to accommodate retail, restaurants and creative offices while maintaining the physical characteristics and an authenticity. As part of #ThrowbackThursday series, we will be showcasing District La Brea’s before and afters, including the people, the artist and retailers behind the project.
For our first Throwback on the block, we’re showcasing the first phase of the project. We started work back in 2010 which included the redevelopment of 6 retail store fronts. We revived the buildings by exposing the unique patterned wood ceilings, original brick walls and steal beams. You can see each of these elements at What Goes Around Comes Around as well A+R, Kelly Cole, Garrett Leight, Aether Apparel, and Trading Post. Stay tuned for next week’s #TBT.
Last Friday, La Brea hosted a pop-up parklet for PARK(ing) DAY, an international event where groups and organizations take over a metered space and convert it into a temporary park. We had activities and live painting by Oxygen’s Street Art Throwdown street artist finalist, Grimnaty who painted a 75 foot mural on La Brea.
