StimULI Breakfast: The Expo Line TOD and Martin Town Center Development – SOLD OUT!
The Expo Bundy Station: Is this where “transit oriented” delivers on its promise?
The taxpayers of Los Angeles have invested billions of dollars in a light rail system that is supposed to transform our region: controlling traffic, clustering jobs, and encouraging much needed denser housing. Yet while the stations have been opening across the Southland, the surrounding communities have been slow to transform–and Sacramento is getting tired of waiting. As The Times recently editorialized, now is the time for the City to step up and deliver, and the Expo Line Transit Neighborhood Plan (“TNP”) may well be the place for the City to take that step. But what is the Expo TNP all about anyway? And what does it mean to an actual developer, a landowner on the ground? ULI is ready to get those questions answered.
The Martin Cadillac site sits at the northwest corner of Bundy and Olympic, just steps north of the new Bundy Station, which is itself regionally sandwiched between Culver City and Santa Monica. It would be difficult to imagine a more ideal case site. On July 18, the ULI StimULI Breakfast will assemble a group of panelists to discuss the relationship between the Martin Cadillac site, the new Bundy station, and the Expo TNP. ULI’s panel includes a key representative of Metro, one of the City planners leading the TND effort, the site landowner, and his architect. We invite you to come hear their perspectives on what the train has already changed in this neighborhood, and what the TND is about to change, both in this neighborhood and for plans–and investments–at this key property.

Parking will not be validated. It has come to our attention that Westfield Century City may no longer be a viable option, as we understand that the parking authorities are threatening to ticket/tow individuals who exit the mall. The cheapest closest option is SP PLUS Parking at 10131 Constellation Blvd (between Century Park East and Avenue of the Stars) at $16. Other options can be found at the Best Parking website.
