MyFigueroa, the $20-million streetscape improvement project running between between Downtown Los Angeles and Exposition Park, is currently on track for completion in September.

A construction schedule posted to the official MyFigueroa website indicates that work is expected to conclude in mid-September for both the 11th Street and Figueroa Street segments of the project.  However, inclement weather or construction of nearby developments could potentially delay this timeline.

At completion MyFigueroa will create a variety of improvements for pedestrians and cyclists including:

  • On-street protected bike lanes
  • Separate bike signal heads
  • Bike boxes at intersections
  • Peak-hour bus-only lanes down Figueroa
  • Expanded sidewalks
  • New seating and landscaping
  • Improved street lighting
  • High-visibility crosswalk
  • Island bus platforms

The project will eventually overlap with a similar upgrade planned for the 7th Street corridor, as well as the proposed Downtown Streetcar.

Data Center Planned for Parking Lot Near Union Station Terminal Annex

Transit-oriented data center?

A large parking lot next door to the Union Station Terminal Annex Building is slated for development as a data center. CoreSite Realty Corp., a Denver-based owner and operator of data centers across the country, is behind the proposed development, which would raze the parking lot at 900 N. Alameda Street for the construction of a four-story, 93-foot-tall data center with nearly 180,000 square feet of floor area.
