This past Friday, another heavy hitting retailer was added to 9th and Broadway, the rapidly evolving intersection and epicenter of Broadway’s amazing revitalization comeback. The Australian apothecary and beauty skincare line, Aesop, opened at 11 am and joins a growing list of upscale retail shops and other businesses helping to transform this once seedy and desolate area into the next hottest destination in Downtown LA.
Ninth and Broadway is on fire! I have confirmed with ANJAC, the downtown-based entity that owns the gorgeous art deco Ninth and Broadway historic edifice, that the two corner retail spaces on the ground floor (next door to UMAMIcatessen) have been successfully leased out to two very exciting retailers. The space directly at the corner of 9th and Broadway, where a check cashing center used to be, will become a beautiful new Aésop cosmetics store. The space adjacent to Aésop will become Tanner Goods, which is a high-end apparel store from Portland, Oregon. Both spaces are just over 1,000 square feet each.
