North Santa Monica Reconstruction Project
Beverly Hills, California
Gruen Associates is the Landscape Architect as part of a team of consultants that have been working on the re-imagining of Santa Monica Boulevard as it passes through Beverly Hills. The Santa Monica Boulevard Reconstruction Project is the City of Beverly Hills’ roadway improvement and beautification plan for the three-mile stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard between Doheny Drive and La Cienega Boulevard; a part of historic Route 66 and one of the country’s most recognizable thoroughfares.
The historic Santa Monica Boulevard Reconstruction Project is the City’s largest and most important public works project in years. The project proposes a comprehensive urban design and reconstruction plan for Santa Monica Boulevard that calls for a complete reconstruction of the pavement, curbs and gutters. Storm drain replacement in select areas will address current drainage problems and new historic street lighting will help create a sense of place for this world-class streetscape.
