Named a 'Best Restaurant Contractor' by BuildZoom!

President and CEO Andy Meyers co-founded Shangri-La Construction in 2008. A UCLA graduate and former NFL athlete, Meyers is an inspired team leader dedicated to improving the surrounding community with quality construction. That commitment has led to exclusive partnerships with companies like Lyfe Kitchen, a healthy fast food chain opening locations all over California and the Southwest. The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) has Shangri-La Construction projects with Calibre awards and nominations. Los Angeles Business Journal has dubbed the firm a Top 40 Contractor in the city.

The District on the Bloc is a Downtown Los Angeles favorite. The 4,108 square-foot, 100-seat bistro is helmed by chef Hansen Lee. Shangri-La Construction built the restaurant on the ground floor of the Sheraton hotel. Inside, guests can enjoy the menu all day in one of the two private dining rooms, the lounge, at the 50-seat bar, or in the main dining room. The look is upscale industrial; exposed ductwork and bare bulbs hanging from rope fixtures balance leather seating and marble tabletops. The flooring encapsulates the whole story, where the hexagonal tile below the bar meets the concrete of the dining room along a haphazard edge. Shangri-La worked carefully to complete the renovation while the hotel and even the kitchen were still in use as a stop-gap restaurant and room service hub. District on The Bloc’s parent project, a full renovation of the brutalist building it anchors, won Gold for Best Hospitality Project at Los Angeles Business Journal Commercial Real Estate Awards.
