IMEG is providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering services for this high profile, major renovation project called The BLOC, in Downtown Los Angeles. The historic Macy’s Downtown L.A. will undergo a $160 million upgrade and will be renamed THE BLOC.
New developments at the site include a 23-story 485-room Sheraton Hotel, along with major upgrades to the hotel such as a new swimming pool and hotel gym with a goal to reach 4-star status; and a 33-story office tower building with creative office space aimed at the growing entertainment, technology, and media companies in Los Angeles. In addition, this exciting redevelopment will detail a plan to build a direct pedestrian connection between THE BLOC and the very busy 7th/Metro subway station across the street. The entire project size is estimated to be 2,400,000-sf.
This project is currently pursuing LEED Gold and WELL certifications
