On March 22, 2018 the Metro Board of Directors approved entering into an 18-month Exclusive Negotiation Agreement (ENA) with the Little Tokyo Service Center (LTSC) to explore joint development at the Vermont/Santa Monica Station. The ENA period allows Metro and LTSC to further refine the proposed project and advance the development process.
During this time, LTSC is conducting community outreach to gather community input on the project. Sign up for our mailing list to receive project updates and notices on upcoming opportunities to get involved. Please share your comments .
During the ENA phase, Metro and LTSC will negotiate the financial terms of the project, with the goal of returning to the Metro Board in 2020 for approval to enter into a Joint Development Agreement and any other agreements necessary to complete the project. Additional details on the proposed project and the development process can be found in the full Metro Board Report .
