Document Description
In 2013, the City of Los Angeles acquired the project site from the State of California, with the intent to seek development opportunities that would reduce blight, and increase the health and safety at the site. The acquisition process included site demolition, and hazardous materials remediation and abatement activities. The project site is currently a vacant dirt lot that is used as a surface parking facility and holds occasional special events. The proposed project includes construction of a 1.96-acre park, featuring both landscaped and hardscaped areas to accommodate a wide variety of park activities, programs, and events, at the northeast comer of West 1st Street and Broadway in downtown Los Angeles. The proposed project would also include a new two-story, approximately 19,200-square-foot building for restaurant uses. Other site improvements would include a bicycle parking area, outdoor seating areas, landscaping with a variety of plants and trees for public enjoyment, walking pathways and passive recreational uses, and new lighting. The intent of the proposed project is to create a world-class iconic park at the core of Los Angeles' Civic Center area. Construction of the proposed project would last for approximately two years beginning in Summer/Fall 2019 and concluding in Summer/Fall 2021.
