23-Story Hotel / Mixed-Use Development
IMEG provided 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. underwent a $160 million upgrade and was 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 redevelopment details a plan to build a direct pedestrian connection between THE BLOC and the very busy 7th/Metro subway station across the street.
This project is currently pursuing LEED Gold and WELL certifications.
