Things are looking bright in Larchmont Village, and it’s not just the holiday lights. In recent weeks, several new businesses have opened, or announced openings, in the beloved shopping district.

On the southwest end of the block, urban sportswear label Corridor is now open in a permanent space at 141 N. Larchmont Blvd. Store manager Orly Menachem told us that the NYC-based menswear line by designer Dan Snyder picked Larchmont as one of two Los Angeles locations, the brand’s first expansion outside of NYC. “We are happy to be a part of the Larchmont community,” said Menachem, noting that although it’s a men’s store, many women shoppers will enjoy the selection of cardigans and sweaters, which are all designed in-house.

Next door, Bacio di Latte is working to bring Italian-style gelato and other sweet treats to 141½ Larchmont Blvd. The storefront window currently is covered with images of decadent gelato, but according to a store representative, that is to conceal renovations as they update the space. The new location is expected to open before June 2022, where freshly-made gelato will be produced in-store each day.

In the former Lipson Building at 126-148 N. Larchmont Blvd., new owner Christina Development announced the first two tenants signed to inhabit the revitalized storefronts. Hawaiian-based Holey Grail Donuts, known for its taro-based donuts, picked the building as its first location in Los Angeles, with one more store anticipated to open in Santa Monica. The second retailer, Skin Laundry, is a California-based skincare brand with more than 20 clinics across the globe, that offers laser facials and beauty products to treat a variety of skin concerns. Both retailers expect to open in mid-2022.

Lastly, residents can expect a FedEx Office to open in the former Trina Turk space, at 212 N. Larchmont Blvd., sometime in 2022.
