A new project launched by the City of Beverly Hills will develop a streetscape plan for the Metro stations along Wilshire and La Cienega Boulevards. “Connect Beverly Hills: Meet Me on Wilshire and La Cienega,” or “Connect Beverly Hills” for short, is the latest initiative designed to prepare for the Metro Purple Line Extension. The Purple Line will bring two new subway stations to the City. The Wilshire/La Cienega station is set for a 2023 completion, while the Wilshire/Rodeo station will open in 2025. The goal of Connect Beverly Hills is to make the pedestrian corridors surrounding the stations more inviting through enhanced amenities, including landscaping, lighting, and bus shelters. Residents, business owners, employees and other stakeholders are encouraged to participate in the program by sharing ideas.
