FIGat7th (formally 7+Fig Shopping Center) is an open-air shopping mall located in the Financial District of Downtown Los Angeles. It is nestled between two office skyscrapers, 777 Tower and Ernst & Young Plaza. Though most of the mall is currently closed due to extensive remodeling, some of its current retailers include Starbucks Coffee, Morton's Steakhouse and California Pizza Kitchen. There are also weekly and monthly events hosted by the mall, such as a farmer's market and art exhibitions.

The mall primarily catered to office workers in Downtown Los Angeles. With the rapid growth of the area's population, however, the mall has started to reposition itself to better serve the needs of the residential community.

History[edit]

The mall opened in 1986 as the "Seventh Market Place", with the Bullock's and May Company department stores as anchors. Bullocks closed in 1997, and May Company became Robinsons-May, closing in 2009.[3]

The mall was renamed "7+Fig" in 2000. In late 2010, Target announced a CityTarget store would open on the location as part of a redesign by the Gensler architecture firm. The mall is owned by Brookfield Properties.[3]

Grand opening of the newly reconstructed shopping center happened in Fall of 2012, renamed FIGat7th.[3]
