The City of Los Angeles has revealed preliminary designs for seven different downtown segments of the Los Angeles River revitalization master plan, envisioned by Gruen Associates, WSP, CH2M, Chee Salette, Mia Lehrer + Associates, AECOM, and Tetra Tech. The project, known as the LA River Downtown Design Dialogue, asked designers to create potential schemes for development of the Downtown Corridor that “focus on interventions to improve connectivity and access to the river” and “imagine how to achieve function while embracing bold, world-class design,” while integrating in river adjacent projects currently in development, such as BIG’s 670 Mesquite. Each of the seven firms were given a different section of the river: Gruen Associates: Barclay to Spring St. WSP: Spring St. to Cesar Chavez Ave. CH2M: Cesar Chavez Ave. to 1st St. Chee Salette: 1st St. to 4th St. Mia Lehrer + Associates: 4th St. to 7th St. AECOM: 7th St. to Olympic Blvd. Tetra Tech: Olympic Blvd. to 26th St.
