Downtown Elmwood features a collection of unique small commercial buildings, professional offices, a Masonic Hall and a couple of churches. In 1988, this location was used for the filming of the Main Street sequences in the movie "Born on the Fourth of July."



Restaurants, artists, attorneys, a recording studio and more call Downtown Elmwood home. Wonderful neighbors like Balboa Place, La Fondita and The Meet Shop OC have been kind to host our Neighborhood Association (ENA) events, and ENA fully supports plans to include lighting and other streetscape improvements in upcoming municipal bond programs to make our commercial district safer and more walkable. 

Affordable rental terms and a small-town feel make it an attractive option for startups, entrepreneurs and mom-and-pop businesses. Interested in commercial space in Downtown Elmwood? Drop us a line and we'll connect you with the right people.
