Metro is partnering with Walter J. Company to build more affordable and market-rate housing at the Westlake/MacArthur Park Station on the B Line (Red) and D Line (Purple). This joint development project at Alvarado Street and Westlake Avenue would include 434 market-rate apartments, 234 income-restricted apartments, 300 hotel rooms, retail amenities and open space. The proposal includes redevelopment of the existing Metro plaza in conjunction with the construction of two high-rise buildings on two adjacent lots owned by the developer.
The plaza improvements would enhance connectivity and transit access throughout the block.
In Spring of 2021, Metro entered into an Exclusive Negotiation Agreement and Planning Document (ENA) with Walter J. Company for development of this project.
Community outreach to refine the project and move it through the development process will occur throughout 2022. Further information can be found on the developer’s website.
