The ULI TAP provided an assessment of the highest and best use potential development on the two public parking lots and adaptive reuse opportunities for the existing 1930's era Art Deco designed buildings.


The City of Los Angeles Economic & Workforce Development Department (EWDD) is preparing a market study for the 2 public lots, the Vision Theatre and Leimert Park Plaza based on the recommendations of the TAP.
