DTLA 2040 Weekly Neighborhood Profiles

Each week, we will highlight a neighborhood and how it will be impacted by the DTLA 2040 Community Plan. 

CCA is relevant to the whole of DTLA and to every stakeholder in DTLA because they are the voice of DTLA.

Patrice Hopper
Senior Director of Marketing

CCA lets us leverage new business opportunities, keeps us up-to-date with current events and gives us a voice on issues that involve our community. With CCA's help, Downtown has become a world class center for business, art and entertainment.

Robert Jernigan
Managing Principal

CCA is a forward-thinking, visionary organization that is a connector. It really helps to position small organizations with key stakeholders that are really making the changes and bringing Downtown into what it is today.

Carmen Zella
Executive Director
NOW Art L.A.

CCA gives me access to the most talented, most diverse, most accessible group of business people, social organizations and non-profits in all of Los Angeles. Itís a point of entry for me.

Tom Gilmore
Gilmore Associates

Starting with the development of STAPLES Center, continuing with L.A. Live and now with the plans for Farmers Field, there has been no better advocate for Downtown Los Angeles than CCA. Their efforts and support have led to the development of a vibrant and revitalized Downtown. Their work has resulted in a business climate that encourages additional financial investment and the continued economic growth of our region. We are grateful for their partnership.

Dan Beckerman
President & CEO
AEG - Anschutz Entertainment Group

Some hear CCA and think Downtown. I hear CCA and think the future of Los Angeles County. From the sound stages of the entertainment industry to the Office of the Mayor, the voice of CCA can be heard across the city.

Melissa Patack
Vice President, State Government Affairs
Motion Picture Association of America

CCA is a tremendous resource to Brookfield Properties in helping us to maximize the value of our real estate portfolio. Whether it is advocacy at City Hall, help with our office and retail leasing programs or special events, CCA adds value to our bottom line.

Bert Dezzutti
Executive Vice President-Western Region

I really value the role that CCA plays and being the place that convenes these discussions where people in the Downtown business community, in the real estate community and in the small business community are able to interact directly with the City and City decision makers on important policies that affect DTLA.
