Arts District

This formerly industrial area was transformed into an artist community in the mid-70's. Today, the Arts District thrives with galleries, photography studios, graphic artists, advertising firms, video and media companies, and the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-ARC).


The Business District of Chinatown consists of 24 blocks, bordered by Cesar Chavez and Bernard, Alameda and Yale. The mission of the LA Chinatown Business Council - the managing entity of the LA Chinatown BID (CBID) - is to creatively plan, manage and facilitate the rebirth of historic Chinatown as a multinational culturally defined, economically vibrant and socially engaging community.

Downtown Center Business Improvement District

The Downtown Center Business Improvement District (DCBID) is a coalition of property owners united in their commitment to enhance the quality of life in Downtown LA. It aims to help the 65-block central business district - the Heart of the City - achieve its full potential as a great place to own a business, visit, work or live. To assure that the City center is safe and clean, the BID's team of maintenance, safety and customer service guides augment LA City services.

Fashion District

LA Fashion District property owners, a coalition of over 700, contribute over $3 million annually to support the LA Fashion District Business Improvement District (BID). The LA Fashion District BID is dedicated to making the community a clean, safe and friendly place to work, shop, do business and live through maintenance, security and marketing programs.

Figueroa Corridor

The Figueroa Corridor is best known for being home to the University of Southern California, Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Exposition Park, and the Shrine Auditorium. Some of the memories that echo through this community include the Olympic Games, the Academy Awards, a Nobel Laureate, and world-class museums.

Historic Downtown

The Historic Core Business Improvement District fosters a community that is a clean, safe, and exciting environment in which to live, work, shop, and play. The HDBID provides safe & clean services, community and visitor outreach, and marketing and economic development strategies that complement this historic and distinguished district, rich with architecture and tradition.

LA Downtown Industrial District

The Central City East Association (CCEA) was formed in 1985 to provide a voice and advocacy for the issues and concerns of property owners located on the east side of Downtown LA. Early in 1998, CCEA formed two Business Improvement Districts: The LA Downtown Industrial District (LADID) and the Toy District. The BIDs work to create a safer, more secure and cleaner environment for area residents, employees and visitors.

Little Tokyo

The merchants, businesses and professional people who comprise the Little Tokyo Business Association are dedicated to maintaining a vibrant and vital community. The LTBA works in cooperation with the Community Redevelopment Agency, LA City Council and other local and statewide organizations to promote Little Tokyo and share its rich and multi-faceted culture.

South Park

You may know South Park for the dining and entertainment venues at L.A. LIVE – including the STAPLES Center, Nokia Theatre, Club Nokia, GRAMMY Museum, Conga Room, and more – but it's also home to a vibrant residential community and a mix of interesting bars and restaurants.
