7th STREET STREETSCAPE

Client City of Los Angeles
Location Downtown Los Angeles

The potential of 7th Street, from Figueroa to Alameda, is a catalytic opportunity to create a grand East-West Boulevard in DTLA. RELM is advocating for a number of elements to give the corridor visual cohesion as well as increased functionality for all modes of transit. Recommendations include extending the tree canopy, installing one type of street light, installing bioswales in the right of way, along with lane reductions to accommodate protected cycle tracks and outboard transit platforms.
