About this Project

Sherwood led the comprehensive stormwater management strategy for this iconic Los Angeles site. Located just east of downtown Los Angeles, this project includes five sites, including: replacement of an existing parking lot along the western frontage, sidewalk widening improvements along Alameda Street, streetscape improvements along North Los Angeles Street, surface improvements to Father Serra Park, and improvements to the northern curb and bus lane of Arcadia Street. While the existing conditions of the sites differ, our proposed improvements enhance the user experience and connectivity of all five sites. The project will go beyond stormwater regulatory requirements to meet the project’s ambitious sustainability framework goals.

Sherwood was also tasked with assisting the client in identifying the most appropriate implementation framework that is in alignment with the proposed improvements. Once a framework is identified Sherwood will be responsible for the tracking, maintenance and coordination associated with the chosen framework including documentation support.
