6AM at Sixth & Alameda investigates the fundamental nature of Los Angeles. Some have suggested that Los Angeles is not a city at all, but rather a ‘bundle of energy:’ a constantly evolving, always moving, magnet attracting human talent. Talented individuals — be they in the arts, sciences, or commerce — are drawn to this community as a place of opportunity, a venue for realizing their dreams.
6AM responds to this vision with three organizing principles:
- Establish an environment that attracts talent and fosters creativity
- Provide a physical framework with has the flexibility to adapt and change
- Explore the deep characteristics and culture of a unique neighborhood, and offer a progressive vision for the emerging Downtown Los Angeles Arts District
Los Angeles Arts District
The Arts District is one of LA’s most in-demand addresses, mere blocks from hip restaurants and gastropubs like Bestia and Little Bear, artisanal cocktails at Church & State and Bar Kenner, organic grocers Global Farms and Kenny’s Produce, Stumptown Coffee Roasters and an outpost of Urth Caffe, plus the Architecture & Design Museum, Brokechella, Artists & Fleas vintage market and more. It’s also a short distance from iconic venues like the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Ahmanson Theatre, LA LIVE and Staples Center.
6AM isn’t only the largest parcel in the neighborhood; it’s the largest LA development opportunity around. It’s also perfectly positioned to tap into the vitality of the new $428 million 6th Street Viaduct Replacement Project—the biggest bridge project in the history of the city.
A visionary process is driving the project design, based on planned collaboration with Arts District partners, City officials and locals via community outreach meetings that will take place. One thing’s for sure: with its size, location and flexibility, 6AM will create a marquee urban development for LA.
