Bunker Hill | Downtown Los Angeles Lofts & Condos For Sale
Bunker Hill Downtown Los Angeles lofts & condos for sale. It was 1867 when two wealthy developers, Stephen Mott and Prudent Beaudry (who later would become the 13th Mayor of Los Angeles) purchased a majority of land up the steep “hill”, just north of modern-day DTLA. Because of the hill’s excellent views of the Los Angeles Basin and certainly its proximity to the Los Angeles River, they knew that it would make for an opulent subdivision. Most importantly they employed surveyor George Hansom to help divide up the land into 80 plots to sell to individual buyers and Bunker Hill was born. The dominant architecture of the houses was certainly Victorian in style. Due to the geography of the area, these residents were able to escape the hustle and bustle of the fast-growing city around the flatland at the bottom of the hill.
Angel’s Flight and Politics
After the introduction of the horse carriage to the neighborhood, the iconic Angel’s Flight was proposed. Due to its quick trip, it was dubbed “The World’s Shortest Railway”, and it took residents homeward from the bottom of the 33% grade and down again. However, In 1955 the Los Angeles city planners decided that Bunker Hill required a massive slum clearance project. In light of this, there was a concerted effort that led to the “removal of the blight” and redevelopment of the area.
In time, the California Community Redevelopment Law of 1945, the Federal Housing Act of 1946, the creation of the Community Redevelopment Agency in 1948, and the Bunker Hill Urban Renewal Project in 1959,. Because of this the “hill” was fast becoming a national destination and a proud feature of downtown Los Angeles. The Bunker Hill project was the longest redevelopment project in Los Angeles’s history. Most of the skyscrapers on Bunker Hill were built in the 1980s, however, the momentum died down in the 1990s, shortly after the 52-story Two California Plaza was finished. In 1999, the vacancy rate for downtown commercial skyscrapers was 26%, one of the highest in the nation at that time.
Fast forward to 2023 and “The Grand” has finally arrived! Famed developer Related’s $1b dollar mixed-use complex towering above popular Grand Park offers so much.
The Grand is the only place in LA where one can encounter such a wide range of dining options on a single city block. And it’s here where Chef and Humanitarian José Andrés’ JAG (José Andrés Group) returns to Los Angeles with three new incredible restaurants. Two restaurant concepts debuted in Conrad Los Angeles—the new 305-room hotel that occupies one of The Grand LA’s iconic towers. San Laurel combines Spanish flavors with local California ingredients in an upscale setting, serving as Conrad Los Angeles’ all-day dining option. Perched on the hotel’s rooftop, Agua Viva is the neighborhood’s go-to beach club with shared plates spanning pan-Latin and Asian flavors. Later in the year, Bazaar Meat by José Andrés will open as a standalone restaurant within The Grand, bringing a wild and wonderful carnivorous celebration to Los Angeles for the first time.
