Silver Lake isn't the only neighborhood having a gentrification moment. Downtown LA is also on the retail rise. With all the excitement surrounding the bevy of new stores cropping up as part of the Bringing Back Broadway initiative, the city's core is swiftly transforming into a must-shop destination.

To toast the growth and keep you up to speed, we've rounded up a handful of retailers that have recently made their debut or plan to open soon. From budget-friendly Ross Dress For Less to fast-fashion favorite Urban Outfitters to too-cool Acne, DTLA is definitely one to watch.—Jessica Estrada
