PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The 424 acre redevelopment project Monrovia Nursery in Azusa, California, a first-ring city in Los Angeles County had at its core a mixed use transit oriented district.  Being on the Gold Line light rail system, the albeit suburban context allowed a modest intensification of density and the addition of retail to create a walkable, service-oriented core. 

 

EDAW’s solution was selected in a nationwide design competition and intensive community outreach process.

 

Steve Kellenberg developed led the planning team, facilitated public workshops and developed detailed design guidelines.

 

Project is nearing completion in Azuza, California.
