Occupying a 14-acre site in downtown Los Angeles, the LA studios redevelopment represents a fundamental shift in mixed-use urban design in Southern California. Centred on a pedestrian oriented ‘main street’ comprised of local serving retail and employment spaces, the studio site aims to accommodate all types of housing tenures and incomes while mixing unique film-related employment and local commercial activity to coalesce in a vibrant and active community.
Designed around people-oriented streets with cars well accommodated in the background, the intent is to create a real neighbourhood, with opportunities to walk to all basic daily needs. Comprised of over 8 million sq.ft. of development, the plan represents one of the most significant developments in the US.
