Little Tokyo/Arts District Opportunity Site

In anticipation of the planned opening of the Regional Connector Transit Project in 2022, Metro analyzed opportunities for transit-oriented development along the alignment. The Metro-owned property on which the future Little Tokyo/Arts District Station is being built has been identified as a Joint Development Opportunity Site.

The Little Tokyo/Arts District Station, located on 1st Street between Central Avenue and Alameda Street, sits at the crossroads of multiple downtown Los Angeles neighborhoods including the Civic Center, Arts District, and El Pueblo. The site is ideally situated to build upon the resurgence of downtown Los Angeles and the rich cultural assets of the area, as well as unprecedented investments in transit infrastructure, new civic and commercial development, open space and innovative community planning.
