New courtyard coming to DTLA isn't so new

The new owner of the 1908 Pacific Mutual building facing Pershing Square plans to tear down a Verizon store and open up a pocket courtyard space facing the street that was there in the 1920s. The space was created during an addition to the building, then covered up to create a new storefront when that was considered premium downtown space. The new pocket courtyard will be used as outdoor seating for a Tender Greens restaurant opening on 6th Street, says downtown advocate Brigham Yen.
