We want to provide our tenants, guests, and website visitors the most current update on the Wilmington Waterfront Promenade project. Below is the latest information provided by the Port of Los Angeles and Waterfront Los Angeles.
Creating a “window on the waterfront” for the Wilmington community, this project includes a waterfront promenade, pedestrian plaza, parking lot, realignment of Water Street adjacent to the railroad tracks and parking northwest of Banning’s Landing Community Center. Project improvements to the eight-acre site will include landscaping, irrigation, signage, lighting, as well as site furnishings such as public seating, bike racks and public drinking fountains. Construction is expected to begin in 2019 at a total project cost of $52.7 million, paid by the Port of Los Angeles.
On July 25, the Port of Los Angeles hosted the first of two community meetings at Banning’s Landing Community Center in Wilmington to provide an overview and status update on the Wilmington Waterfront Development Project.
The Wilmington Waterfront Development Program is focused on connecting the Wilmington community with the waterfront, creating open space, and developing visitor-serving commercial and green technology business development opportunities in and around the Port.
Discussion topics included the environmental document for the Avalon and Fries Street Segment Closure, entry plaza sundial for the Avalon Promenade and Gateway Project, public involvement for naming development projects along the Wilmington Waterfront, and highlighting Wilmington’s history. The second community meeting will be held on September 12, 2019. The Port is asking for your suggestions on new project names, entry plaza themes, and more.
