Los Angeles Union Station


Background

Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS) is considered "the last of the great railroad stations" in the United States. Built in 1939, it is the largest railroad passenger terminal in the western U.S. The structure combines Art Deco, Mission Revival, and Streamline Moderne styles and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. In 2011, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority purchased the property from Catellus. In 2012, Morlin Asset Management was retained to perform property and facility management, leasing, marketing, event planning, and project management. 

Union Station was suffering from deferred maintenance, an outdated infrastructure, and a need to create a safe and clean environment for the ever-expanding traveling public. Additionally, the constant presence of a large non-transit population was discouraging visitors and travelers alike, which contributed to a poor image of the Station. Major capital improvement and restoration projects began in 2013 and continue today. New leases have been completed with the objective of bringing in eclectic local operators to supplement the services of existing tenants. Concurrently with leasing and construction projects, the Morlin team has expanded both the cultural and private event activity at the Station. Social media followers continue to grow and bring attention to the Station, supplementing the new website. Our efforts continue to enhance the Station as a cultural destination in addition to operating a major intermodal transit facility serving Southern California and the western United States.
