You are invited to find out how a long overlooked area of Los Angeles has become the thriving and vibrant L.A. Sports and Entertainment District (LASED) that we enjoy today! The L.A. Sports and Entertainment District Master Plan was the key document that established the vision for the sustainable development of STAPLES Center, L.A. LIVE, and adjoining boundary properties. The project’s impact on the community has been tremendous – close to 1,500 annual events in and around Microsoft Square, a vital hub for the community, and now draws pedestrians to an area that was nearly deserted before. Much-needed transit and infrastructure improvements, including rail, bus shuttles, and bike networks have made downtown L.A. much more accessible and the addition of a grocery store has further enticed residents to move downtown from the suburbs. This walking tour will be led by a representative of the design team for the Master Plan, and who will speak about the overall plan and discuss how these types of developments can transform cities into thriving urban fabric.
