Visiting our Office
■Mandatory Building Security Procedures
The City National 2 CAL Visitor Management System requires that all visitors, upon arrival, show a valid photo-ID (passport, driver license, etc.) at the security desk in the first floor lobby to get a name tag. You will then be escorted by the building security to the elevator, where access to our suite (the 17th floor) will be given.
Please, therefore, be sure to bring your photo-ID and allow yourself a few extra minutes for registration at the security desk upon arrival.
■ParkingAccess by Public Transportation:
We are located by the Pershing Square stop on the Red and Purple Metro Lines, and many bus lines stop directly in front of California Plaza. Please see Metro for subway and bus information. Travel to Union Station in Los Angeles is also possible by Metrolink and Amtrak. Union Station and other downtown locations can be conveniently reached by the LADOT Dash system.
City National 2 CAL has underground parking lots. There are entrances on Olive Street and Lower Grand Avenue. The parking rate is $4.50/10 minutes, with a $42.00 daily maximum. Early bird parking with entry before 9:00am is a flat $18.00. Valet parking service is also available. Unfortunately, we cannot validate your ticket! From the parking garage, take the parking elevator to level "P" and proceed up one level to the lobby security desk.
As an alternative, there are reasonably-priced public parking lots on Olive Street, and Hill Street, as well as metered spaces on Upper Grand Avenue, Olive Street and 4th Street.
