Hennessey + Ingalls to move to DTLA Arts District


Whoa. Hennessey + Ingalls is leaving Santa Monica for a new 5,000-foot bookstore space at One Santa Fe across from Sci-Arc in the Arts District on the east edge of downtown Los Angeles. This according to the Downtown News. Hennessey + Ingalls, which used to be where the Westside Pavilion stands, has been around for 52 years and on Wilshire Boulevard just off the Third Street Promenade since 2003. After the move the Santa Monica flagship and the smaller Hollywood store will close.

"Our store is now the largest art and architecture bookstore in the western United States, and it is probably the largest retail operation in the country dealing just with books on the visual arts," says the Hennessey + Ingalls website.
