Avenue of the Angels

Urban Street and new buildings

While Figueroa St. is the main north bound traffic spine on the west side of Downtown Los Angeles, Francisco an existing parallel secondary street traverses the blocks between the Staples Center / Ritz Carlton and the office complexes that exist on 8th street.  By a simple re-alignment it is possible to create a pedestrian paseo in this right of way which would bind more of the city together as well as extend the gathering space of LA Live and the business community.
