Exclusive: Urbanize LA Tours The BLOC

One of the most important projects currently underway in Downtown Los Angeles is the renovation of the erstwhile Macy’s Plaza fortress into an open-air mixed-use complex known as the Bloc. This process began when the Ratkovich Company submitted an unsolicited offer to purchase the shopping center from the previous owner, local office landlord Jamison Services. Within months, the transformation was already underway. One of the myriad benefits of adaptive reuse projects is that they can operate on much shorter timelines.
