Today, a new exciting retailer opens for business for the first time in Downtown LA’s Historic Core. A brand new COS store will be opening today at 12 pm in a former historic theater built in 1927. After a lengthy restoration process by historic preservation experts, Spectra Company, the once dilapidated Olympic Theatre has been transformed into a stunning new flagship store for H&M’s upscale subsidiary brand. The exterior of the theater now includes a beautifully restored “Olympic” blade sign that lights up at night with bright yellow neon accents adding renewed life to the street.
As the listing agent for the Olympic Theatre in Downtown LA owned by Titan Metropolis LLC, I am especially excited to report that we have signed a new retailer that will become another strong addition to Downtown LA’s growing shopping district. H&M is so bullish on downtown’s future — and why shouldn’t they be when their massive flagship store in DTLA has been doing extremely well — that they are now going to turn the dilapidated Olympic Theatre into their much more exclusive and fashion forward brand called COS (like “coss”), which stands for Collection of Style.
