Los Angeles, California
Status: In progress
How we’re solving the challenge
Downtown L.A. is undergoing a major revitalization and The Bloc, the largest single-asset, mixed-use property in the city, is central to the effort. Located on historic 7th street, The Bloc is comprised of 1.8 million square feet of retail, office and hospitality space, anchored by Macy’s and a 485-room Sheraton Hotel, ensuring it will be the destination downtown.
We were brought in to first do a “quick” LEED EB rating and then later in the renovation process, we’ll be doing a second LEED EB program to show what effects the upgrades have had on the LEED certification. The Bloc will also be the first Delos WELL Building Project in Los Angeles, a program that outlines technology enhancements and performance-based measures that enhance occupant health in the built environment.
- Consolidation of three different operational entities into one cohesive team
- Total focus on benchmarking so that future improvements can be clearly priced
- Difficult consolidation of Energy Star component parts into one result that shows the huge possibilities for improvement.
