Community meeting for new Metro Emergency Ops Center in DTLA Arts District



We want to hear from you!

Metro is designing a new Emergency Security Operations Center (ESOC) 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. The new facility will serve as the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and central location for Metro security operations, radio dispatch, and emergency coordination. Metro is also planning to integrate Rail and Bus Operations Centers into the facility. This will be a secured facility for authorized personnel only.

The ESOC facility will be approximately four stories tall and 100,000 square feet in size with 150 employee parking spaces. It is anticipated to be a Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design (LEED)-Silver building (at a minimum), incorporating sustainable design. A site-specific artwork will be integrated into the project.

Please join us to learn more about this project and provide your feedback. We look forward to seeing you!

  1. Please don’t tell me your going to build a new control center when you only have one train line that use ATO (gold line hardly does ATS and red line doesn’t at all), and when most basic facilities like time LEDs, proper on-train announcement (such as doors closing), and platform screen doors are hardly maintained or nonexistent.

  2. 150 parking spaces?! Really? Metro is subsidizing(with taxpayer money) and encouraging its employees to drive into DTLA.

  3. Steve, more background information should be provided before the meeting.
    What existing facilities are being outgrown and where? Metro operations are growing, but 150 parking spaces implies an astonishing labor budget increase.
    How about adding a phone-in line to the meeting a la Telephone Town Hall.
