Mayor Villaraigosa, joined by Councilmember Herb Wesson and South Korean Consul General Choi, will celebrate the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to establish the partnership between the City of Los Angeles and the Republic of Korea for the Superblock project.

The Superblock, bounded by Wilshire Boulevard, Vermont and New Hampshire Avenues, and 6th Street, would be the focal point in Koreatown in promoting international trade and culture with South Korea. The joint development with the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and the Korean Consulate in Los Angeles will include new Korean Consulate offices, a Korean Culture Center, a Korean American Museum, offices for a Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency and much needed green space.
