Parking Instructions:

While driving, head south on S Flower St and park in the Joe’s Auto Parks parking lot between 7th and 8th street. (There are many lots in the area. That one is one of the least expensive and close to the building.)

Walk north to 7th street and head east on 7th street to the main entrance to the BLoc (formerly known as Macy’s Plaza). Facing the center courtyard, proceed to the office building on your right. Enter through the first set of double glass doors.

Check in with the security person behind the counter. They should be wearing a black uniformed shift. They will direct you to the correct elevator. (Note: The elevators are computer controlled. If you follow someone into a random elevator you will almost certainly not go to the NRHL floors.)

We are going to be on 16th floor and follow the signs.
