Artists can’t afford the Arts District

This timely article from the LA Times looks at how two years of steady development in the Arts District (and in DTLA in general, really) has priced most creatives out of the area, ironically. I have some artistically talented friends who’ve been displaced by this trend. Since I live a stone’s throw from the Arts District this is all very interesting (and slightly worrying) to watch. That said, the number of incredible coffee shops and eateries has skyrocketed at the same time. Come for the art, stay for the $9 avocado toast (seriously).
