Koreatown has seen a tremendous revitalization over the last decade. An influx of capital dedicated to the revitalization of Koreatown has attracted a new resident base of young urban dwellers. This new, hip client base has brought new restaurants, night clubs, and retail opportunities, making Koreatown one of the more desirable submarkets in the greater Los Angeles area.

In the past decade, Koreatown has experienced significant gentrification and development, specifically along Wilshire Boulevard. Most notable is the Vermont, a 462-unit luxury apartment with over 30,000 SF of retail and 600 covered parking spaces.

Additionally, residents are given convenient access to the Red and Purple Metro lines. The Red line offers service from the North Hollywood Arts district all the way to Union Station in Downtown LA. The purple line is currently undergoing an extension and once completed, will offer service to the current terminus at Wilshire/ Western will extend westward for about nine miles and add seven new stations providing easy access to the Westside.
