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.
