Case Study: Culver City Economic Development, Urban Design and Sustainability
Culver City is currently experiencing an economic boom in large part due to the incentives connected to TOD. But how does the City address the lack of open space? Join ULI Los Angeles for an update from newly elected Culver City Mayor Thomas Small and other city officials on the current economic development projects in the area. We will also showcase The Centennial Garden project, designed by wHY Architects, which began as an idea to mark the City’s 100th anniversary and morphed into a project that showcases the spectrum of public space development opportunities in our constricted cityscape. It will be a sustainable open space opportunity for the residents of Culver City, designed by a locally based–yet, globally engaged–design firm, that will not only create the plan for this facility, but will then patronize it.
ULI LA has assembled a panel made up of the key principals involved in this community effort: the elected official who led this vision, the designers who turned an idea into a plan, and the government staff member charged with converting the plans into reality.
