The historic Lankershim Depot at North Hollywood Station, originally built in 1896 and known as the Toluca Southern Pacific Train Depot, is now home to Groundwork Coffee. The coffee shop has been open for the past few weeks as part of their soft launch phase and the grand opening is set to take place this Friday, Feb. 17.
Store hours are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. And don’t let the name fool you, they have more than just good coffee. Their food menu includes pastries, sandwiches and salads. I personally recommend the fried egg sandwich — it’s delicious.
Groundwork Coffee is located directly across from the North Hollywood Station Orange Line platform. To get there from the Red Line, exit toward the Orange Line and use the pedestrian tunnel. North Hollywood Station is also served by multiple Metro Bus lines, Burbank Bus and LADOT Commuter Bus.
Metro completed the $3.6-million restoration of the Lankershim Depot, a registered State Historic Landmark Building, in 2014. However, a tenant was not able to move in until construction of the pedestrian tunnel connecting the Red and Orange Line was completed. The Lankershim Depot is also part of 15.6-acre site in North Hollywood that is planned for future joint development.
A media event was held Friday, Feb. 17 for the grand opening: here is an album of pics.
