Jiffy Lube Memorial Transit Plaza

New, 25 comments

A giant steel saddle isn't the only thing coming to the weird Jiffy Lube island in Sunset Junction. According to the Eastsider LA, starting around 2015 (and assuming funding works out), "the Jiffy Lube that has sat alone in a triangular island bounded by Sunset, Santa Monica and Manzanita Street will be replaced by an approximately 20,000-square-foot transit plaza with solar-bus shelters, bike parking and room for a community gathering space...The proposed transit plaza would include rerouting bus and cars off Santa Monica Boulvard, which would be closed to become part of the plaza, on to a reconfigured Manzanita Street on the west side of Jiffy Lube."
