DTLA real es­tate whiz Lisa Fit­ti­paldi tours—and touts—the city’s ever-emerg­ing cul­tural nu­cleus.

For all the talk of Down­town’s mo­ment hav­ing ar­rived, the white-hot ’hood is in fact “con­stantly emerg­ing,” says Lisa Fit­ti­paldi, a sales as­so­ciate at TEN50, an uber-ex­clu­sive new condo de­vel­op­ment at the cor­ner of South Grand Av­enue and West 11th Street. With a res­i­dent base that is younger and more cre­ative than ever, Down­town con­tin­ues to add to its al­ready im­pres­sive ros­ter of restau­rants, bars, art gal­leries, and per­for­mance venues, adds Fit­ti­paldi, an Al­bu­querque na­tive and former the­ater ac­tress who has spe­cial­ized in Down­town real es­tate for close to a decade: “I try to walk down dif­fer­ent streets ev­ery day so that I can see all of the new busi­nesses that [keep] open­ing!” ten50.la

FOOD WITH A VIEW

“I love the pan-roasted salmon at rooftop bistro Perch (448 S. Hill St., LA, 213-802-1770; per­chla.com). They have the best views of LA.”

GRAND HO­TEL

“Don’t miss the the­ater and rooftop at the su­per-cool Ace Ho­tel (929 S. Broad­way, LA, 213-623-3233; ace­ho­tel.com/ losan­ge­les)—a per­fect place to spend an evening. You can even see TEN50 from the rooftop bar…”

GRAMMY WHAMMY

“The Grammy Mu­seum (800 W. Olympic Blvd., LA, 213-765-6800; grammy mu­seum.org) is the ul­ti­mate place to spend a day with music roy­alty. There is an ex­tra­or­di­nary amount of his­tory here…

WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

“Join­ing Down­town Art Walk (down­tow­nart­walk.org) is my fa­vorite, fa­vorite way to spend a Thurs­day night— just ex­plor­ing all the new DTLA and Arts District gal­leries!”

Sky-high! Down­town con­tin­ues its rise, says TEN5O’s Lisa Fit­ti­paldi (IN­SET), point­ing to (CLOCK­WISE FROM LEFT) the panoramic rooftop view at lo­cals’ fave Perch; The God­mother (2016) by Is­abella In­nis, as seen dur­ing Down­town Art Walk; and the...
