At The Real Deal’s debut DTLA Spotlight earlier this month, the city’s top developers and brokers acknowledged the neighborhood’s dramatic transformation — but said the area remains a work in progress.

The panel, which included Rachel Zanetos (Brookfield Properties), Ricardo Pagan (Claridge), Mike Leipart (The Agency), Matthew Ahrens (Rising Realty), Mike Akerly (Polaris Pacific) and Hiten Samtani (The Real Deal), explored DTLA’s residential boom, the area’s office landscape and what the neighborhood needs to keep driving growth.

To see the panel in full, watch the video above.
