Los Angeles City Councilmember José Huizar with support from Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, an impressive slate of City leaders, downtown residents, civic and business organizations and property owners of the largest historic theater district west of the Mississippi, shares a vision for Bringing Back Broadway.
The historic Broadway corridor, in the center of downtown Los Angeles and the heart of the Historic Core, features one of the largest concentrations of historic theatres on one street in the nation. Twelve beautiful theatres are located within nine blocks, set between a bevy of beautiful architectural gems; these structures stand in tribute to the architectural and engineering achievements of the early 20th century. The Broadway corridor is part of an important National Register Historic District.
Broadway enjoys a colorful history as the birthplace of vaudeville and cinematic entertainment in Los Angeles and was once considered the retail capital of the United States. It was also an important west coast center for business and commerce and was one of the most popular destinations for Angelenos and tourists utilizing the city’s former streetcar system.
Bringing Back Broadway is a public-private partnership initiative focused on an ambitious ten-year plan to:
Revitalize the historic Broadway district between 2nd Street and Olympic Boulevard
Activate inactive theaters
Re-active more than a million square feet of vacant commercial space
Assist retailers and prevent further retail vacancies
Increase parking and transit options to serve Broadway
Encourage cultural, entertainment and retail uses on Broadway that will sustain generations
Create a sense of place and history through urban planning, design and lighting guidelines and streetscapes
Make the dream of riding a streetcar downtown by 2014 a reality.
As a link between the past and the future, the revitalized historic Broadway corridor will ensure that the vibrant, cultural character of Broadway remains, while helping Broadway provide something for everyone, day and night by complementing and connecting new large-scale downtown entertainment and cultural destinations, as well as galleries, restaurants, and cultural activities on Spring Street and throughout Downtown.
