CURRENT PROJECTS

PROJECTS UNDERWAY

The LA Waterfront consists of a series of waterfront development and community enhancement projects blanketing more than 400 acres of existing Port of Los Angeles property in the harbor communities of San Pedro and Wilmington. This area has changed dramatically over the past decade, and there is still much more to come. The Port of Los Angeles remains committed to supporting projects that provide additional open space and encourage public access. Below is a snapshot of approved projects underway. 

Town Square and Promenade 2021


Plans include a new public promenade that runs parallel to the Los Angeles Main Channel for nearly one mile, meeting the new town square at 6th Street, just east of Harbor Boulevard. The promenade and town square will include such amenities as public seating, landscaping, hardscaping, signage, architectural finishes, handrails and lighting. Construction is expected to begin in 2020 at a total project cost of $32.9 million, paid by the Port of Los Angeles. Completion is scheduled for Summer 2021.
