Center City West Bounded by Temple Street, Wilshire Boulevard, the 110 Freeway and Lucas Avenue, City West was once a Downtown suburb that became an isolated, overlooked district separated from the central city by the freeway. The new wave of Downtown revitalization has made its once barren hills part of a larger redevelopment effort. It's now home to modern apartments and condominiums, new high schools bursting with students, and several noteworthy restaurants. Once more at the top of Downtown residential neighborhoods, Central City West is home to some of the most elegant buildings in DTLA.
