Whole Foods to Anchor Posh Apartment Complex in Downtown L.A.

Units at the Eighth & Grand complex in downtown L.A. will range from 516 square feet to 1,323 square feet. Rents will start at $2,000 a month for a studio. (Carmel Partners)

A ritzy 700-unit apartment complex, anchored by a prominent supermarket on the ground floor, is rising in resurging downtown Los Angeles.
The project, called Eighth & Grand, is one of several residential and retail developments that are transforming blocks of historical structures and parking lots on the south edge of the downtown's financial district.

SoPac's Most Recent LPLP Recipient

We are happy to announce the Southern Pacific Region’s most recent Local Producer Loan recipient, Zatik Naturals! Located in Glendale, CA, Zatik Natural produces skin, hair and body care products. They can currently be found in the SoPac region.

Zatik means ladybug in Armenian; and this beautiful insect symbolizes spring, beauty, and regeneration. Zatik empowers gardeners and farmers who want to produce healthy, organic fruits and vegetables, free of insecticides by purchasing ingredients for their skin care products directly from organic farms.  This company’s beauty products are made without mass production; using fresh raw botanicals cultivated along the Pacific coast, on USDA-certified organic farms without the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). 

In 2005, husband and wife duo, Ovsanna and Garik, combined their science and business skills to craft raw beauty products. As chemists working in a pharmaceutical company, the couple realized that people need quality and safe skin care products. Their products are produced at room temperature to retain the integrity of the nutrients and essential minerals that exist in the oils and botanical extracts. The Zatik team is passionately motivated to create all of its products without the use of any preservatives, parabens, synthetic ingredients, petrochemicals, artificial colors, or fragrances.

Since loan recipients have a unique relationship with Whole Foods Market, we’d really appreciate you keeping Zatik Naturals in mind for things like in-store marketing, promotions, demos, etc.  Please share this information with your team members and guests! Facebook and Twitter verbiage is below.  Let me know if you need contact information in order to set something up in your store.  Also, please contact Kimberly Albright or  Erin Harper  if at any time you are considering discontinuing or significantly decreasing your purchase of this product.
 Thanks to everyone for your support of the program, and please let us know if you have any questions!

Welcome Upper East Side (87th St.) in NYC!
