If These Streets Could Talk – Industrial Streets in the Arts District

Abandoned rail remnants in streets as historic preservation? Flush-curb, shared collector streets? Industrial alley greening? On this WalkShop, we’ll tour historic industrial streets in the evolving and dynamic Arts District neighborhood, see the transformational changes happening with new development projects and adaptive reuse of historic warehouse buildings. We’ll explore ways the City of Los Angeles is retrofitting this longstanding industrial district to provide complete streets without compromising those unique characteristics, and learn about efforts to reimagine collectors into a shared street typology in a manner that incorporates remnants of the past including granite gutters, abandoned rail, and flush curbs. All this while creating place, providing new mobility options, and adding greenery.
