Because LA is too big.

LA did have simultaneous gentrification of numerous neighborhoods. Venice, Silver Lake and Los Feliz all gentrified into their current states during the same time period. The current Echo Park / DTLA gentrification started picking up towards the tail end of this.

Well to be fair that is just Manhattan. I think Los Angeles is too vast to ever exclusively become a playground for the rich, sort of like how much of the rest of NYC (while expensive) has plenty of middle class residents.

However reading certain web sites that cater towards the development news of DTLA, you can tell there are quite a few people who want DTLA and environs to be a Manhattan/SF-esque rich person playground.

And Los Angeles definitely has simultaneous gentrification (neighborhoods in different stages of gentrification) - look at the Arts District, Echo Park, Highland Park, Atwater Village on the same trajectory, Koreatown and Hollywood on the same trajectory, Mid-City and East Hollywood on similar trajectories.

Agreed

Also about DTLA I am not a fan of those who feel it needs to be a Manhattan/SF type place. I really like the way its been evolving and I hope it improves while retaining some of its unique character. I also personally want it to become one of many great neighborhoods in this city rather than the sole urban core at the expense of everywhere else that some websites seem to want (such as Brigham Yen though I really enjoy reading his site)

In addition to its vastness LA's multinodal nature would also somewhat prevent a Manhattan/SF-esque extreme gentrification IMO. Part of why those 2 became what they are now is that they are a dominant center, while even with DTLA development LA seems to be moving even farther from that with future Hollywood, Warner Center, and Century City development

Gentrification IMO is always a tough topic because while I view it overall as a huge net positive, it is tough to ignore some of the downsides

I never got that impression from reading Brigham Yen's website? I get that he wants to see continued improvement of DTLA but not the extreme you are suggesting. What did I miss that you have seen him write....??

I've seen him kind of bash outlying parts of Los Angeles as not being urban, and I have seen comments on his articles about people decrying development outside of DTLA (or businesses choosing to locate in Melrose, BH, SM, Hollywood etc.) but don't think it's as bad on his site as other development sites/message boards where there is almost an outright vehemence towards anything outside of DTLA.

But DTLA Rising is a great site. So is Building Los Angeles.

How about Historic South Central? Does anyone believe that it will gentrify due to it's proximity to DTLA? Will it be the next Boyle Heights?

Hahaha. Funny to think that Boyle Heights is already 'over'.

And yeah that will probably happen. I know a couple dudes fed up with the Arts District who already moved into some industrial space down there and are putting on diy shows and sleeping on a couch. You know, typical hipster shlt.
