Pretty! We likey! The LA Times offers up images of the Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan. Think grassy banks, kids on bikes, couples holding hands, and, of course, housing:
The plan calls for nearly 6,200 residential units along the river in Canoga Park and 4,665 units near Chinatown. Both sites also would see new retail and office development. The $2 billion project would likely be financed by a public-private deal, guesses Shelly Backlar, executive director of the advocacy group Friends of the Los Angeles River.
