Why am I not astonished there are people hating on what Apple has done here? Such childish comments.

Apple taking an historic Los Angeles theater built in 1927 that was likely going to be demolished and spending many millions of dollars (I wouldn't even be close estimating this, $50+ million?), carefully preserving its architectural opulence and grandeur and bringing it up to current commercial building codes, to benefit the arts district in general and people who visit. Huge hat-tip to Apple!

Beautiful, except for the fact that it's in downtown.
Downtown may still be rough around the edges (to say the least), but east of downtown, the rejuvenated "Arts District" is nothing less than amazing. What was no-mans-land a few years ago is now a thriving, booming neighborhood, with brand new housing, shops and restaurants. All it takes is a spark and some money and neighborhoods can change.

The west side of Manhattan went from "Hell's Kitchen" to "Chelsea" in a matter of a few years. I grew up in New York and remember when 42nd Street was too seedy to drive down, let alone walk. Investment by Disney, among others, changed all that. Disney did something similar in Hollywood when they restored the historic El Capitan theatre. Here's hoping Apple's investment in downtown LA is equally transformative.

Hopefully it’s the start of further revitalization efforts of DTLA, though I’m cautiously optimistic. Or optimistically cautious.
