SPACE 134 FREEWAY CAP PARK

SPACE 134 FREEWAY CAP PARK

Client Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG)/City of Glendale
Location Glendale

RELM’s conceptual design of a 27-acre cap park over the 134 Freeway in Glendale stitches together a downtown long separated from its residential community when a highway bisected the heart of the city into two halves. Our design calls for 7 pedestrian/vehicular crossings—spaced every 700-1200 feet—allowing residents to traverse from one setting to the next, accessing an expansive park setting as well as Glendale’s civic and retail cores. The project summarily improves mobility, commerce, and public life in LA County’s third-largest city.
