Taylor Yard Redevelopment
Los Angeles, California
Torti Gallas and Partners has been selected by developer McCormack Baron Salazar to lead the planning effort for one of the last remaining tracts of vacant land in the city of Los Angeles. Situated along the Los Angeles River, slightly over 3 miles from downtown LA, the 24-acre site known as Parcel C at Taylor Yard was once a lush farmland as part of the Rancho San Rafael, and later a major hub for the Southern Pacific Railroad.

After several community meetings and discussions with local government focus groups, this highly-prized site is being transformed into a transit oriented mixed-use development with 25,000 SF of retail and 450 new units including affordable housing. It is currently being designed as an intricate network of pedestrian-friendly streets and blocks around a central linear green “Alameda” that connects a new retail street to the proposed 40 acre public park west of the site. The project’s proximity to the Los Angeles River and ongoing plans for its revitalization present a great opportunity for new ways of critically thinking about similar sites throughout the Greater Los Angeles region.
