Metro presented the final Environmental Impact Report for the Westside Subway Extension last night. The report includes renderings of proposed stations at La Brea, Fairfax, La Cienega, and near Rodeo Drive. Looks like Johnie’s Coffee Shop survives, but Ace Gallery in Beverly Hills, The green MTA center adorned with Jim Isermann’s artwork at La Brea and the former Tiny Naylor’s on La Cienega do not. Here are some before and after images to orient you to the Purple Line circa 2020.
