From Eye Sore to A Must See: Creating Urban Parks from Thin Air and Adding Real Estate Value (Gerdo Aquino) - ULI fall meeting - 102811

Editor's Notes

  1. read
  2. Infrastructure isnt necessarily grren/
  3. With over 4,200 acres of parkland, Griffith Park is the largest municipal park with urban wilderness area in the United States. Although with elevations ranging from 384 to 1,600 feet above sea level, the park is not easily accessible.
  4. In the context of los angeles, not everyone can live within a quarter mile to a park. Inner cities that are largely constrained by available space but are in dire need of parks and open space, can harness under utilized parcels– vacant lots, alleyways, portions of schools sites, public or utility-owned property, unncessarily wide streets and abandoned river beds– and convert these into parklands. We see this opportunity as a defining the next generation of parks. Parks defined by a varying set of filters. Parks don’t need to be green to function as a place for people. We see the future of parks as a kind of infrastructure that provides communities across a city the basic framework that can facilitate recreation, interpretation, ecological functions and wellness.
  5. The above case studies represent an abbreviated version of landscape infrastructure, as a way to re-examine our relationship with the land, establish a more sustainable use with limited resources, and repurpose the lands we have taken.
  6. In the context of los angeles, not everyone can live within a quarter mile to a park. Inner cities that are largely constrained by available space but are in dire need of parks and open space, can harness under utilized parcels– vacant lots, alleyways, portions of schools sites, public or utility-owned property, unncessarily wide streets and abandoned river beds– and convert these into parklands.

Inner cities that are largely constrained by available space but are in dire need of parks and open space, can harness under utilized parcels– vacant lots, alleyways, portions of schools sites, public or utility-owned property, unncessarily wide streets and abandoned river beds– and convert these into parklands. We see this opportunity as a defining the next generation of parks. Parks defined by a varying set of filters. Parks don’t need to be green to function as a place for people.
