LOS ANGELES — The recession has crashed the downtown party conceived for this car-obsessed city, short-circuiting a major push for retail.
A few years ago, visions of a bustling, around-the-clock downtown danced in the heads of developers and government officials. Now, despite pockets of progress, financial struggles have created obstacles to retail and residential projects crucial to making downtown a walkable, mixed-use destination and home instead of a stopover for commuters.
