Find out why Uptown was named a Great Neighborhood by APA in 2014 and has become one of America’s hippest places. Further north, the Broadway Valdez District Specific Plan is transforming an old auto row into a vibrant mixed-use retail destination, while also preserving historic resources. Since the 2014 Plan, 2,800 housing units, 400,000 square feet of retail, and a boutique hotel have been built or are under construction. Learn how implementation of the plan supported the area’s transformation, from zoning to expedited EIR processing, application review, and approval — and see plazas, paseos, restored facades, and buildings come to life.
