The Bloc Mobility Hub
As part of the renovation of The Bloc, a mobility hub is being developed that will establish the site as a one-stop shop for all things transportation: Metro Rail, bike share, car rentals, ride-hailing, and more. The project will also include elements such as a parklet along 7th Street, a customer service hub, and a kiosk for Downtown’s new transportation management organization, FASTLinkDTLA. Studio One Eleven will be sharing these and more details about the exciting new project.
Special Guest: Marcus Luciani, Studio One Eleven
