WHAT IS THE GALE YARD?
The Gale Yard is a vacant property owned by the City of Beverly Hills. It is currently being used as a staging yard by Metro for the construction of the Wilshire/La Cienega Purple Line Station, and the City will retain ownership once the subway construction is complete (after 2024). The City is seeking input from the community on options for developing the site with a long-term use.
where is the gale yard site?
The Gale Yard property (8421 Wilshire Boulevard) is located near the northwest corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Gale Drive. The future Wilshire/La Cienega subway station (currently under construction) is located one block to the west of the Gale Yard site. The historic Clock Market building is directly adjacent to the Gale Yard site to the west.
Your input and suggestions will help to inform the process of seeking development proposals moving forward.

The City hosted the first public forum on May 2, 2022, to facilitate a community discussion on potential long-term use of the Gale Yard site. The site (8241 Wilshire Boulevard) currently serves as the staging yard for Metro's construction of the Wilshire/La Cienega Purple Line Station. The City owns the Gale Yard site and plans to develop the property after the Metro project is completed.
