Just Another Day In SouthLA

Leimert Park Village With A Subway

I actually came across this some years ago when this was first introduces into the world but I wanted to make sure I presented to the  SouthLA World.  The picture above depicts a Leimert Park Village with what is now an uncertain, subway station, what looks like a promenade, and two (2) Mixed-Use multi-story buildings.  One of the mixed-use buildings will be a Mixed-Use Park and Ride which will host 2-3 levels of subterranean parking, ground floor retail and parking, Office & TV/radio studio space and a Rooftop Terrace.  The other mixed-use building will be a Mixed-Use Cultural Building with ground floor retail and anchor The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture dubbed “Schomburg West.”  This new Leimert Park would also host a remodeled Vision Theater, which is currently under construction.

The proposed and soon to be under construction Crenshaw Line is currently being developed as an at-grade (street level) light rail train which goes underground right before Leimert Park and resurface after Martin Luther King Blvd, but doesn’t actually stop at Leimert Park.
