Achieving smart growth at its best via public private partnership

The Village at Santa Monica and Tongva Park epitomize best practices in City Planning, Development, and Urban Design by balancing and incorporating public open space, affordable housing, market rate housing, and commercial/retail space. This exciting Case Study and Site Tour offers participants a sneak peek at these vital spaces while hearing from key players in their development from Related California (The Related Companies), the City of Santa Monica, and ValleyCrest Landscape Development.

Santa Monica is already known as one of the most livable areas in Los Angeles County, but the $350 million Village at Santa Monica and $47 million Tongva Park boost the notion of livable communities to another level.

Participants in the Case Study and Site Tour will learn about:

  • How the two projects create a gateway to the city while reshaping pedestrian and bicycle thoroughfares.
  • Unique linkages between housing and public open space, while mixing market rate and affordable housing, effectively completing the City’s grand vision for Civic Center area.
  • Implementation of a complex development finance structure that serves as an excellent example of public private partnership.
