Quick.

Name the fourth-largest city in the Los Angeles area with major employers, plentiful housing in the downtown corridor, two of the best shopping malls anywhere, a historic and newly renovated theater, funky small shops, good nightlife and some of the best restaurants in Southern California.

Right. Glendale.

Glendale has it all.

The Business Improvement District in Downtown Glendale supports and promotes business along the Brand Boulevard corridor. Our organization is creating a downtown area that is clean, safe and filled with fun. Our goal is to make the downtown district a destination where you might live, work and play.

Downtown Glendale is far ahead of the curve when it comes to the “New Urbanism” movement that promotes the idea of “live, work and play” in the same area. As a place to live, downtown Glendale is filled with choices from funky to modern. You can walk to work as there are dozens of major companies in our financial center or close to downtown. World-class shopping and unique, small merchants line Brand Boulevard. Some of the best restaurants and bars in LA are on our streets, and more are on the way. The historic Alex Theatre boasts some entertainment gems that appeal to all tastes.

The first thing you’ll notice about the Downtown District is the cleanliness. Our ambassadors keep the streets sparkling. Our future is bright. The district is making plans to relocate and create an awesome Farmers Market, and to create more opportunities for play after work.

The Business Improvement District is privately funded with property tax money paid by the property owners in the district. We do not use taxpayer dollars for our projects.
