The extension of the Metro Purple Line has been discussed, studied and planned for years and now the city of Los Angeles has begun construction on the first of three sections of the subway. Metro Purple Line will be extended 9 miles to the west starting at the Wilshire/Western terminus. The project will also be adding seven new stations dispersed along the west side of Los Angeles at Wilshire/La Brea, Wilshire/Fairfax, Wilshire/La Cienega, Wilshire/Rodeo, Century City, Westwood/UCLA and Westwood/VA Hospital.

Metro has begun the process to acquire needed property for the Westside Subway Extension. Hundreds of properties will be affected by this project; if you are an affected owner, an eminent domain case may reach you. It is important that you contact a reputable firm with extensive experience in eminent domain, such as California Eminent Domain Law Group, APC to protect you rights.

Metro has made it clear that it will exercise its power of eminent domain for their $6.3 billion project should negotiations fail. If you are affected by this project you have the right to seek just compensation for your business or property. Do not be left without proper representation from experienced eminent domain attorneys. California Eminent Domain Law Group, APC has handled numerous eminent domain cases, including against Metro, and has taken a substantial number of these cases to verdict and settlement with extraordinary outcomes for clients.
