CleanTech Los Angeles is dedicated to establish Los Angeles
as the global leader in research, commercialization, and deployment of clean technologies
The City of Los Angeles is a national center for cleantech research and development and industrial manufacturing. The CleanTech Corridor stems for a shared vision between City of Los Angeles, the Community Redevelopment Agency, and the Department of Water and Power, to support the development of a business cluster dedicated to cleantech manufacturing processes and technologies for the 21st century.
The Cleantech Corridor is a 4 mile long district on the eastern edge of Downtown LA, stretching from the Los Angeles State Historic Park in the north, to the CleanTech Manufacturing Center in the South, and including both the east and west banks of the Los Angeles River.
Located on an entire city block in the heart of the Clean Tech Corridor, the La Kretz Innovation Campus is scheduled to open in the summer of 2013. Plans for the Campus now include a 30,000 square foot home for LACI, cleantech demonstration centers, R&D labs, conference facilities, work force training facilities as well as space for more mature cleantech companies.
The Cleantech Manufacturing Center will provide a home for full scale manufacturing of environmental technologies in Downtown Los Angeles.
The Cornfields Arroyo Seco Specific Plan establishes new zoning requirements to develop a mixed use neighborhood in 660 acres northeast of Downtown Los Angeles.
The 2010 SCI-ARC competition asked architects, landscape architects, designers, engineers, urban planners, students and environmental professionals to create an innovative urban vision for the undeveloped Los Angeles' Cleantech Corridor, a several-mile-long development zone on the eastern edge of downtown LA.
The 2010 Urban Land Institute Technical Advisory Panel was sponsored by the Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles (CRA / LA) and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to provide recommendations and alternatives to guide the future of development in the CleanTech Corridor. ULI has been conducting Advisory Panels since 1947 providing strategic advice on difficult local land use issues where an “outside point of view” is appropriate.
