Pico-Union HPOZ is located in central Los Angeles. Prior to the turn of the century, single-family residences in the area featured a broad range of architectural styles including late 19th century Victorian-era cottages, early 20th century Craftsman and Mission Revival bungalows and larger homes in Period Revival or Classical styles. Many of the houses were designed by known architects and builders of the period such as Frank Tyler, Hunt and Burns, Stiles O. Clements, and Elmer Grey. Today, Pico-Union is a neighborhood of great ethnic and socioeconomic diversity with a mixture of single-family and multi-family housing. Alvarado Terrace Historic District and Bonnie Brae Historic District, both listed in the National Register of Historic Places, are located within the HPOZ. The Pico-Union HPOZ was adopted by City Council in 2004.
