The ribbon-cutting ceremony of Forever 21's new Lincoln Heights headquarters was held on Wednesday.

The facility on the 3800 block of North Mission Road includes the company's headquarters, distribution, logistics, e-commerce, merchandising and warehouse space. The approximately 1.8-million-square-foot space was previously used as a showroom for Macy's.

The retailer's new establishment means nearly 700 more jobs for the city. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Councilman Ed Reyes attended the ceremony.
