About The Bloc
700 S Flower St, Los Angeles, CA
THE BLOC will include a state-of-the-art European Standard 478 room Sheraton hotel, a fully updated 250,000 SF Macy’s Department Store, over 150,000 SF of unparalleled retail shops and restaurants surrounding an open-air, multi-level public plaza, and a fully renovated 33-story, 700,000 SF office tower with rooftop garden lounge.
THE BLOC will also become a transit hub, with direct regional connector subway, streetcar and bus connections bringing customers right into the center of the project. Just a short walk from the convention center and Staples Center, THE BLOC will be a sports and convention hospitality and tourism destination.
All of the projects main functions, the hotel and office lobbies, the retail and restaurant operations, and the main valet drop off will orient to strengthen and activate this new plaza, which will accommodate spectators for a continually evolving series of concerts, displays, live performances, and cultural events.
Further, the developer will open the existing fortress-like brick walls around the block with new show windows, outdoor dining patios, tenant signage, and new vehicular and pedestrian entrances, along with new landscaping and street amenities.
