This 25-story office tower built in 1994 is Metro headquarters. Its marble-floored lobby features light fixtures and columns reminiscent of the grand architecture of Union Station. A series of major murals depicts Los Angeles circa 1870, 1910, 1950 and after 2000. Conference rooms and some offices have windows with views. Rooftop is accessible.
Metro Board Room & Meeting Rooms
The 350-seat Board Room is the site of all Metro Board and committee meetings. The Board Room features a series of large curtained windows at the back of the room with a balcony directly outside the windows and a large rear projection screen.
Below the Gateway Building is a multi-level parking structure, which is perfect for crew parking and garage shots. Just south of the Gateway building is an ideal spot for base camp set-up.
Union Station East Portal
This expansive area features a sweeping staircase, a waterfall and a 500-gallon fish tank. The west end of the East Portal leads to train boarding platforms and Union Station via a pedestrian tunnel walkway. The east end of the portal leads to an overly-wide pedestrian walk showcased by bridge undersurfaces and surrounded by rich landscaping and architecture. Directly south of the East Portal is an open patio area with angled concrete walls and a glass elevator, all of which is directly above a multi-level parking structure.
