Luxe live/play development One Santa Fe is almost fully occupied, and spendy tenants will need more than just retail therapy and a killer food scene. This winter, stylish Arts District inhabitants will score a beautification option when essential salon Benjamin with Negin Zand opens its second chop shop at the mixed-use hub's The Yards.
"We chose the Arts District because it's the most exciting part of LA right now," salon owner Benjamin Mohapi tells us. "Everything there is so cool and fits with our ideology; it doesn't have to conform to anything. The [area] is writing its own story and that's what we and our clientele are all about."
Dubbed Benjamin Arts District, the space will feature a retail element but not a full Selects Apothecary boutique like at its WeHo location. Speaking of which, Mohapi reveals that its beauty shop is set to expand soon—stay tuned for more.
