7th Street Metro Station at the Bloc
The Rose Garden of Innovation
The Downtown Breakfast Club bestowed the “Rose Garden of Innovation Award” to the Metro Station At the Bloc. The 7th street Metro Station is the first direct underground connection to a private community to a subway station. The Bloc believes in reinvention and discovery. They believe everything that comes before us shapes what we are now. And, we believe that connection is everything.
The Bloc is a vibrant, open-air urban center, a growing, inclusive community, a LEED™ certiﬁed Gold project, an inﬂection point in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. Encompassing a full city block along LA’s iconic 7th Street corridor, The Bloc connects the ﬁnancial, fashion, jewelry, and theater districts – and the 7th Street Metro Center Station, where four DTLA lines converge.
Offering a diverse mix of thoughtfully curated shops, artisans, premier retailers including a Macy’s ﬂagship store, restaurants, bars, open-air green space, and entertainment, The Bloc is also home to the Sheraton Grand Los Angeles Hotel, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, and a 722,000 square-foot, creative-focused ofﬁce tower. An array of events from live music, dance, and theater performances to art installations, ﬁtness classes, and food and drink tastings welcomes Angelenos and visitors from all walks of life – and anyone seeking inspiration, community, and connection.

WE LOVE SMART REAL-ESTATE DEVELOPMENT, CONSTRUCTION, BUSY STREETS, SPECIAL EVENTS, FILMING, MARCHES, AND ALL THE THINGS THAT ENERGIZE DOWNTOWN… BUT NOT WHEN THEY CLASH ALL AT ONCE!

WE NEED LESS CHAOS MORE COORDINATION AMONG OUR CITY DEPARTMENTS SO THAT OUR TRAFFIC DOESN’T GRIDLOCK.
