One by one, block by block, retail spaces in the Historic Core in Downtown LA are starting to see a rebirth in new businesses as the urban revitalization of LA’s Historic Core continues to march forward (read: momentum continues to build). The busy intersection of 7th and Spring is beginning to show some solid signs of positive change with the recent openings of Juice Crafters, Tierra Mia Coffee, and the Lab 3 gift shop. Now, a new boutique yoga studio called Evoke Yoga will be joining that list of new businesses at 7th and Spring.

Evoke Yoga will be located at 212 W 7th Street in the beautifully restored historic 1912 Van Nuys building (directly to the right of the front entrance). The approximately 1,500 square foot space will offer a “serene and modern space from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.” I was excited to learn that the health-conscious owner of Evoke Yoga, Ilan Mit, who also owns Juice Crafters less than a block away, plans to “brighten up the immediate area” with lighting at night and potted plants to soften up the facade improving the appearance of this block. Evoke Yoga will be opening this summer 2013.

  1. SO exciting that someone is finally rejuvenating the Van Nuys building. Even more exciting if they really do follow through with the lighting and plants- that would completely transform that corner. I hope this will help perpetuate the growth and clean up between 7th and 8th, but great news for DTLA in general.

    Good news for the area. As the years go forward, a variety of stores will continue to fill in street level locations. The downtown area stills needs Von’s, Albertson’s, Whole Foods, Bristol Farms and Trader Joe’s to serve the growing residential community.

      Ralphs is at least as good as vons or albertsons. What we need is a TJ or WF.

      And it’s great news about this part of town.
