The Financial District (Financial Core) is a neighborhood in Downtown Los Angeles south of the Bunker Hill district.[1] The two neighborhoods are divided roughly at 5th Street. Like Bunker Hill, the Financial District is home to corporate office skyscrapers, hotels and related services as well as banks, law firms, and real estate companies.

Demand for apartments in downtown Los Angeles surged in 2010 and the years following. In 2015, thousands of apartments were under construction or proposed for the area around 8th Street.[2] The 7th St/Metro Center station with access to the Metro Rail Red Line and Blue Line serves the Financial District.

The Financial District contains some of the city's more significant destinations and buildings, including:

The Financial District was created by the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency to provide an alternative to the old Spring Street Financial District, which fell into decline in the second half of the 20th Century.
