Pacific boulevard streetscape design
Client: City of Huntington Park Location: Huntington Park, CA
Pacific Boulevard or “La Pacific” as it is know locally, is one of the top three highest grossing commercial districts in the County of Los Angeles. Here LA designers worked on two projects on Pacific, first by leading a Streetscape Plan that focused on reestablishing the street’s grandeur, and transforming the space into a complete street for all transportation modes. The Plan took advantage of the street’s wide right-of-way from the old Red Car line that ran down its middle - to introduce the ‘Pacific Promenade,’ a wide ‘Ramblas-like’ strolling area in the middle of the street with special paving, branded signage, and areas for vendors. This area was designed to accommodate the many parades and festivals that help define the neighborhood.
