About the Community of San Pedro

Those who choose to locate within the Historic Downtown Waterfront District will find that it is a great place to live and work. The District has a pro-business attitude and will work together with you to achieve success for you and the local economy.  The San Pedro Chamber of Commerce, The Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council, city government, and economic development agencies work together to make doing business here easier.  Located within Los Angeles County’s Fourth District and LA’s 15th Council District, the community offers a vibrant mix of professional and retail businesses, including the Port of Los Angeles.

Marymount College opened its waterfront campus with The Marylyn and Chuck Klaus Center for the Arts (projected to open Fall 2013) in the heart of downtown. With these two locations on Sixth Street, as well as the Arcade Gallery and partnerships with the Warner Grand Theatre and the Grand Annex, Marymount’s downtown campus is an “anchor tenant.”

The many dining opportunities combined with the colorful mix of unique shops (you won’t find a franchise or chain store here) and an array of professional services makes The San Pedro Historic Waterfront District a unique place to work and do business.
