Vine Street

Vine is a street in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California that runs north-south from Melrose Avenue up past Hollywood Boulevard. The intersection of Hollywood and Vine was once a symbol of Hollywood itself. The famed intersection fell into disrepair during the 1970s but has since began gentrification and renewal with several high valued projects currently in progress.

The Hollywood/Vine (LACMTA Station) serves the intersection with the station entrance located at Hollywood Blvd. and Argyle Ave., located one block east.

The Capitol Records building, Capitol Tower, is located just north of the intersection of Hollywood & Vine.

South of Melrose, Vine turns into Rossmore Avenue, a Hancock Park thoroughfare that ends at Wilshire Boulevard.

Vine Street continues for one block as a residential street in Torrance, renamed as Vine Avenue. However, it is a strictly residential street which terminates at Sepulveda Boulevard in Torrance.

In a ceremony on 12 February 2007, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel announced the build of The W Hollywood Hotel & Residences. The city-block-size project worth $600 million intends to restore luster to the iconic intersection.

Metro Local 210 and Metro Rapid 710 serve Vine Street.

Commuters seek going further south by going some blocks east on Wilshire Boulevard from Rossmore Avenue to Crenshaw Boulevard, where Metro Local 210 and Metro Rapid 710 serve to go further south.
