Stitching LA Back Together

A massive proposal is on the table to create a 800m long urban park above a section of Highway 101 in downtown Los Angeles. Dubbed park 101, the proposal would create a roof and parkland over the 101 which currently cuts a trench through the downtown area and restricts pedestrian access to many important sites in the city.

The master plan also includes development to place some new signature buildings along the park as well as some additional mixed-use development, like retail and residential, to bring more than just business people to the downtown area.
