Scalpel for Highland Park

New, 22 comments

The California Planning & Development Report*'s Bill Fulton checks out York Blvd in Highland Park at the request of City Councilman Jose Huizar, noting that "helping York Boulevard become a great place requires a scalpel, not a bulldozer; and entrepreneurs who want to transform one of the few two-story buildings into something great, rather than build new four-story stuff. Not everybody can be Pasadena. Not everybody wants to be. As planners and developers shape the new, more urban Los Angeles that’s emerging, they’re going to have to come up with a varied set of templates for different situations, rather than simply assuming that the mixed-use model so popular a few years ago will apply everywhere." Really, Fulton? You've never seen anything like York Blvd before? [Planning Report]
