La Cienega/Jefferson station is an elevated light rail station on the E Line of the Los Angeles Metro Rail system. The station is located over the intersection of La Cienega Boulevard and Jefferson Boulevard, after which the station is named, in the Baldwin Hills/Crenshaw and West Adams neighborhoods of Los Angeles. The station briefly served as the western terminus of the E Line between the opening of the line on April 28, 2012 and the completion of the Culver City station on June 20, 2012.
Originally a stop on the Los Angeles and Independence and Pacific Electric railroads, it closed on September 30, 1953, with the closure of the Santa Monica Air Line and remained out of service until re-opening on Saturday, April 28, 2012. It was completely rebuilt for the opening of the Expo Line from little more than a station stop marker. Regular scheduled service resumed Monday, April 30, 2012.
Los Angeles architect Eric Owen Moss proposed a 17-story glass ribbon office tower with underground parking with within steps of this station. The tower began preparation in late 2018.
Condominiums and retail across from the station is currently under construction. It will be built by the Carmel Partners firm.
