Improved Local Experience
Community serving retail options will be hand-selected to meet the neighborhood’s day-to-day needs while improving the shopping experience with expanded walkways. Widened sidewalks with a focus on connectivity and mobility will be incorporated to improve flow and create a better pedestrian experience – including a proposed crosswalk and traffic signal to connect Ogden to the existing retail shopping center.
Open Air Gathering Spaces
The reconfigured property will create new open-air, gathering spaces with communal seating (benches, seats, tables). Much-needed green space will be thoughtfully designed to include more than 75 trees and visually appealing landscaping with a focus on greenery and shade.
Upgraded Parking and Traffic Circulation
Designed to avoid significant traffic impacts, a reconfigured, spread out parking lot with improved entrances and exits will improve traffic circulation and flow. Additionally, the project will include bike paths and provide approximately 250 new bike stalls. With the Metro’s expanding Purple Line located about a half-mile away, local car-free connectivity to the greater Los Angeles area will be enhanced, helping to support the City’s balanced mobility goals.
The project revisions an outdated shopping center and the elegant mid-rise design is reflective of the community’s input. The new building façade will enhance the character of the shopping center and better reflect the surrounding neighborhood.
