How about Western and Vermont in stretches from Sunset to about 80th St.? La Brea from Wilshire to at least SM. Wilshire itself, from DT to the ocean but particularly in Ktown, BH, WLA, SM.

The Helms Bakery furniture complex and adjacent blocks could count as well. Several more blocks in BH and along 3rd.

There are a lot of such districts along streets in central LA. But maybe these don't count under your density criteria?

There's really too much to list... it looks like you are just shooting for "destination shopping." If so, you have a pretty good list there. My contribution to the list will be downtown El Segundo... centered around Grand & Main.
