PARK 101, a vision formulated in June 2008, is a progressive urban planning concept to meet the unique characteristics of downtown Los Angeles. It is an innovative concept to reconnect a downtown area that was split by the construction of the US 101 Freeway.
PARK101 District is a visionary urban design solution to “cap” a half-mile length of U.S. 101 in Downtown Los Angeles. The PARK 101 District, capitalizes on an exceptional opportunity for urban revitalization at Southern California’s most ambitious High Speed Rail Transit Oriented Development (TOD) at Union Station, in Downtown Los Angeles.
Key stakeholders involved in making PARK 101 a "reality" include the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), City of Los Angeles, Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), and EDAW (a major urban design company).
