AmApp Backs Out of Spring Street Park

New, 100 comments

The Spring Street Park has just opened, creating the first real green space in the Historic Core, and people are loving it. One problem: Downtowners American Apparel have backed out of their deal to help fund maintenance (which will cost about $100,000 a year; AmApp had committed that amount for five years). "It's uncertain why American Apparel backed out of its pledge. In an email to Los Angeles Downtown News, Ryan Holiday, a spokesman for American Apparel, confirmed that the company was in talks to sponsor the park, but that the plans did not come to fruition."
