About the Project Area
The proposed 663-acre Cornfield Arroyo Seco Redevelopment Project Area (Proposed Project) is located just northeast of Downtown Los Angeles, bounded by the Chinatown Redevelopment Project Area to the west and Lincoln Heights to the east. The Los Angeles River and Arroyo Seco travel through the Proposed Project and meet near its northern boundary. The historic Arroyo Seco Parkway and Interstate 5 also traverse the Proposed Project. The Proposed Project is served by the Gold Line Light Rail, while the proposed High Speed Rail will probably cut through the area.
The Proposed Project includes industrial and warehouse areas, residential neighborhoods and numerous City facilities. Councilmember Ed P. Reyes requested that the CRA/LA study the Proposed Project area to explore ways to reverse the existing physical and economic decline and identify revitalization strategies.
