LA’s Future 27,000 SF Zara Flagship Now Under Construction at FIGat7th in Downtown LA

The new 27,000 square foot Zara LA Flagship store is now under construction at FIGat7th

This past spring in May, the exciting news was announced that Zara — the trendy fast fashion retailer from Spain selling high quality clothes and accessories for women, men, and children — is coming to FIGat7th in Downtown LA adding to the growing list of national retailers opening downtown and contributing tremendously to our urban revitalization. The new store, facing Figueroa, will be a ginormous 27,000 square feet, making it the largest location in Southern California out of about a dozen total locations (that figure includes LA, OC, and San Diego).

Construction is now under way on the new Zara LA flagship store. New advertisements with models clad in Zara attire are plastered outside the store’s facade that pedestrians can easily spot while walking along Figueroa Street. When the new store opens next spring 2014, it’ll help activate Figueroa further with pedestrian activity, helping to create a stronger connection between the Financial District and South Park. In addition, as more stores on the caliber of Zara continue to open downtown, it’ll finally create a bona fide urban shopping district that is still sadly missing from the second largest city in the country.

    What’s up with the surface parking lot across the street? Anyone know if there’s development plans… seems pretty high profile to not.

    • exactly this might be one of the most important parcels in downtown! who owns it do you know anything about it brigham?

    I can see this area becoming the new trendy shopping district, with stores lining up all the way down to to Olympic.

    That empty lot is distressing and tantalizing all at once! Oh the possibilities. The new shops at the Wilshire Grand opening to the street, the Bloc, 7th & Fig, the new stores on Broadway, Whole Foods, etc., will create an entirely new retail synergy Downtown in the next 5 years. As a Downtown resident, I’m thrilled with all of the new development.

      @Val – it will bring them more customers. Chains attract a wide range of patrons who then may be encouraged to explore downtown on foot and discover some of the independent shopping options available. This particular store and shopping centers are a bit separated from most of the indy shopping on Spring and Main Streets however.

    • Someone like myself who lived in Downtown does like to take the subway back down there. Add that to how easy it is to do and sort of pushing other friends to join me. I think little pokes like that will eventually steamroll into something.much more. Whoever is looking at the numbers to build these stores sees the same thing.
