The Jewelry District is an area in Downtown Los Angeles known for its stores and businesses trading in jewelry, gold, and silver. The area is bordered by West 9th St. on the south side, S. Hope Street on the west, West 4th St. on the north, and S. Los Angeles Street on the east. Adjacent and overlapping downtown neighborhoods include Central City, the Financial District, Historic Core, Arts District, and the Old Bank District. Some of the nearby attractions are the Staples Center, Microsoft Theater, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and the L.A. Convention Center. Viewed by many as the largest jewelry district in the U.S., the area is also considered a part of the Historic Core of Los Angeles with many early twentieth-century buildings still standing. Major development began in the 1920’s but buildings were limited to 150 feet tall as planners felt that tall skyscrapers would lead to overcrowding and congestion. While almost all the buildings in the area were originally designed for general office use with retail spaces on the street level, several buildings have been renovated to provide condominiums and lofts such as the Sky Lofts, Library Court, Rowan Lofts, and the El Dorado.
