PARK 101, and the proposed new district surrounding it, is a celebration of a new generation of urban parks that is giving back to the City of Los Angeles in important and subtle ways.
The PARK 101 District is poised to become the next great place in Los Angeles and indeed southern California. PARK 101 is seen as both the catalyst for urban renewal in this neighborhood as well as the logical outcome and extension of transit investments. It forges a new roadmap toward urban sustainability and economic prosperity for Los Angeles. It is as significant an idea today as Bunker Hill or the Los Angeles Aqueduct were to a prior generation of leaders. PARK 101 would capitalize on the recent and future investments in public transit infrastructure in Los Angeles (and across the state) and is located at the heart of where these projects are set to converge.
Phasing Strategy - The Park 101 team has focused their attention on project phasing and identifying potential new developable land within the Park 101 district. The video above outlines a clear phasing strategy starting with improved pedestrian connections from union station to the city hall.
This is a project of the City of Los Angeles with funding provided by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) Compass Blueprint Demonstration Project Program. Compass Blueprint assists Southern California cities and other organizations in evaluating planning options and stimulating development consistent with the region's goals.
