Downtown's river-adjacent Arts District has been changing for a long time. Most artists were priced out of their warehouses years ago and celebrity residents and fancy sausages (and New Girl) have been drawing attention to the neighborhood for ages. But the AD is at a tipping point now: the massive and expensive One Santa Fe mixed-user has just opened to its first tenants, the city has proposed new rules to make the area more livable for its rich new residents, and pretty soon the neighborhood could have more grocery stores—all boutique-style—than the rest of Downtown combined. Here, a map that captures all the fancifying changes afoot and on the way in the Arts District, including enormous mixed-use projects hoping to catch One Santa Fe's runoff, open-air malls, arts complexes, and of course fancy coffee joints.
