The new LA River: Mapping 21 projects rising along the waterway

The plan to ecologically restore an 11-mile section of the Los Angeles River put a big, national spotlight on the waterway.

Anticipating a revitalization, city and real estate developers have had their eyes on the flood channel for years now. The result has been a steady stream of projects—parks, bridges, residential, adaptive reuse, mixed-use, and even some glitzy projects by big-name architects.

(Some neighborhoods noticed too, moving to control the inevitable gentrification of the river’s restoration.)
