Can you believe it’s finally happening? The long-awaited City Target, a game-changing retailer for both residents and workers downtown, will be officially open next Sunday the 14th. For years, residents have had to trek outside downtown to get basic (household) items that many take for granted. Now, all the goodies we’re familiar with in Target’s vast product selection will be available to Downtown LA residents and workers in about a week.
In addition to all the excitement surrounding the opening of City Target, I was also excited to find out a few other new names have joined the roster at FIGat7th including Sprinkles Cupcakes and The Melt from San Francisco (this will be their fifth location and the only one outside the SF Bay Area).
According to SVP of Brookfield, Bert Dezzutti, who was gracious enough to give us a tour of FIGat7th today, there will be a total of about 21 eateries at FIGat7th. About 17 of them will be located on the lower level situated in an upscale food court concept called Taste. Some of them we have covered in previous posts including: Mendocino Farms, Juicy Lucy, Loteria Grill, Oleego, Indus by Saffron, and George’s Greek Cafe.
I asked Dezzutti if he would give us a hint as to what other retailers are coming to FIGat7th, and although he couldn’t state any names in particular, he mentioned that some exciting apparel and electronics retailers are close to finalizing leases. What those businesses are should be revealed toward the end of the year. (My biggest wish would be for a Uniqlo store.) So the excitement continues at FIGat7th as we wait to learn what other goodies are in store for us.
