“East First Street Los Angeles”

Team 9999
Harvard University

A strong phasing strategy introduces urban connections between the neighborhoods north and south of East First Street, reinforcing First Street as a corridor and a linear locus of commercial activity. Likewise, the river undergoes revitalization in stages that bring in natural landscape, public art, and new development. The Mariachi Plaza parcels are redeveloped as a mixed-use district of ground-floor retail with commercial offices and 1,124 units of market-rate and affordable housing at build-out.
