LA Waterfront: setting the stage for West Harbor The Port of Los Angeles, one of the busiest ports in the world, has long been focusing on rejuvenating the nearby LA Waterfront in San Pedro, California to become a vibrant destination for locals and visitors. Completion of phase one of the Town Square and Promenade in October last year represented a key milestone. “The revitalisation of the LA Waterfront will not only improve the quality of life for residents but attract visitors from around the world,” said Los Angeles mayor, Eric Garcetti, at the official dedication ceremony. “Through this million investment, we are helping to create new jobs and businesses while cementing our status as a global destination.” Los Angeles county supervisor, Janice Hahn, added: “Our downtown area and our waterfront have never had a seamless connection and that’s been a problem for our businesses and our ability to attract tourism. The new Town Square and Promenade are not just going to be a great place for community events, they are finally going to provide the connection between downtown San Pedro and the waterfront that we have wanted for so long.” The port-funded infrastructure project sets the stage for construction of the long-anticipated West Harbor retail, dining and entertainment development, a pivotal centrepiece in the overall LW Waterfront plan. The Promenade and Town Square project also emphasises the strong public-private partnership between West Harbor and the Port of Los Angeles. The conceptual design was developed by West Harbor’s worldrenowned landscape architects James Corner Field Operations, designers of iconic open spaces in major metropolitan settings, including the High Line in New York. Port engineers took the design concepts and delivered a project that meets the shared vision of extending the LA Waterfront promenade along the new West Harbor development. When complete, with the addition of phase two of the promenade, the expansive waterfront open space feature will stretch almost a mile along the port’s main shipping channel. Attention to detail Opening up spectacular views of the Vincent Thomas Bridge, 24/7 vessel traffic and the theatre of working water, the 30ft/9m-wide Promenade runs parallel to the “Main Channel of America’s Port”. Features of the sweeping promenade were envisioned over 20 years ago and include: custombuilt wooden benches; lamp posts with the waterfront’s signature angel wing fixtures; drinking fountains; droughttolerant plants lining the stretch of the concrete and granite paver walkway; over 30 trees; and the same timber and cable safety railing that runs throughout the completed areas of the waterfront. Adjacent to the Downtown Harbor public docks and directly in front of the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, the Town Square includes a turning circle, car park, Main Channel overlook and ramps connecting the site at 7 th Street. It is dotted with more than two dozen trees and has a giant swing, art deco bollard lights, a granite stone seat wall, utility infrastructure and public restrooms.
