ALREADY DRAWING RETAILERS: In L.A., Roger Vincent reported with AEG's plan to build a new events center in downtown L.A., "some retailers and developers have begun scouting the neighborhood and sounding out commercial real estate brokers for opportunities." CB Richard Ellis broker Derrick Moore said that "chain stores prospecting for new downtown locations include CVS and Walgreens drugstores and various large clothing stores." Vincent noted grocery store chains Sprouts Farmers Market and Fresh & Easy "are also scanning the area." Real estate brokers indicated that "at least four major hotel chains are contemplating a spot downtown, with their sights set on a spot near L.A. Live and the convention center" (L.A. TIMES, 3/27).
