Open House Wednesday: Metro’s proposed Emergency Security Operations Center


The open house is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 14. All the info is below:

We want to hear from you! Metro is proposing to build a new Emergency Security Operations Center (ESOC) facility at 410 Center Street in the City of Los Angeles Arts District (southeast corner of Ducommun Street and Center Street) on property already owned by Metro. We are seeking your input.

The new ESOC facility would be approximately 4-stories tall and 100,000 square feet in size with one level of subterranean parking. It is anticipated to be at least a Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design (LEED)-Silver building. The ESOC would be a secured facility for authorized personnel only and not open to the general public. In the first phase, it would serve as the Emergency Operations Center and central location for Metro security operations and emergency coordination. In follow-up phase(s), it could integrate Metro Rail and Bus Operations Centers into a consolidated operations center for more effective management of Metro’s expanding rail and bus networks.

Please join us to learn more about the project and provide your feedback. The Open House will include information about the overall project and an overview of the environmental analysis for the project. Staff will be available to answer questions and gather input.
