Transportation Options (Instructions from Metro, Driving, etc)
We recommend walking, rideshare services, or the Metro when visiting Metropolis Dermatology. The traffic situation in downtown can be challenging. However, we have researched this topic for you since we are in LA, and we understand that this is very important!
When you arrive in the building lobby, sign in at the security desk, and the concierge will allow you to take the elevator to the 10th floor (we are suite 1050, the double doors right off the main elevator lobby). The building is highly secured for everyone’s benefit.
Walking: What’s better than being able to walk to your dermatology clinic? For those of you working in DTLA and want to stop by during lunch hour or after work to avoid the traffic, just walk on over. It’s great for the environment and you get good exercise. We are located at the intersection of 9th Street and Figueroa Street in the reddish-brown First Republic Bank building, across from Smart and Final.
We are 2 blocks south of the main Metro hub downtown: 7th Street /Metro Center stop. This is the intersection for the RED, PURPLE, BLUE, and EXPO lines. We are only a 5-7 minute walk from the station in DTLA. This is a good option for those coming from Pasadena, Hollywood, or the Westside.
DASH Downtown A, B, E, F
Ridesharing (Uber, Lyft, Bird, Lime, Jump): You don’t have to worry about parking, and it’s a cheap way to get around in LA. Our address is: 888 S Figueroa St, Ste 1050, LA, CA 90017
Parking: There are numerous parking areas near our clinic. There is an attached parking structure in the building (entrance from Figueroa Street) as well as one on 833 Flower Street ($18 max per day). Many covered lots and surface lots are available within a 2 block radius, as this is a popular retail area ([email protected] shopping center, the BLOC). Late afternoon and weekend parking tend to be a fixed charge of $6-10, while during normal business hours, rates are calculated by time.
NOTE: These garages are not affiliated with Metropolis Dermatology. We do not validate parking. Some people choose to park for free at the Smart & Final store near us. We recommend that you make a purchase with those stores in order to use those parking areas, but this is at your own risk.
There is also limited metered street parking on surrounding streets.
Additional Information: Our Downtown LA office is located in the heart of Downtown in the International Tower, which has a First Republic Bank on the ground floor. Our office is on the 10th floor in the high-rise located on the northeast corner of 9th St. and Figueroa. Entrance to the building is accessed at the street level via Figueroa St. Please check in at the lobby security desk and they will let you up to the clinic. We are the double doors directly in front of the elevator lobby.
