LOS ANGELES — Forest City Realty Trust Inc. has started Phase II of the redevelopment, preservation and adaptive re-use of the Subway Terminal Building, originally built in 1925 by Pacific Electric Railroad in downtown Los Angeles.

Renamed Metro 417, Phase I consisted of the development of 277 loft-style apartment homes. For phase two, Forest City will redevelop and transform the ground floor and two subterranean floors into approximately 133,000 square feet of multi-tenant retail space.

Lorena Tomb and Danielle Cornwell of Jones Lang LaSalle are marketing the retail space for lease on behalf of Forest City. Metro 417 is located in the Bunker Hill area of Los Angeles adjacent to a station for the Metro Red Line subway. Amenities for the property will include on-site parking, in-unit laundry facilities, a rooftop garden, gym, business center and 24-hour security.
