The NoHo Piazza is Here
Mayor Eric Garcetti opened the NoHo Plaza, a.k.a., NoHo Piazza, the new public space in the heart of the NoHo Arts District and the first project of the “People St” program. The Piazza was created by revamping an alley off of Lankershim Blvd. by covering the pavement with an artistic design and with planters, tables, chairs, umbrellas and more.
“L.A. is the densest urban area in the nation, so we are getting creative to reclaim underused spaces that can be transformed into places for Angelenos to eat, shop and spend time with their friends and families,” Mayor Garcetti said. “The People St initiative allows community groups — who know their neighborhoods the best — to partner with City Hall to create great public spaces that make our communities more livable and prosperous.”
This public space was spearheaded by our NoHo Business Improvement District (BID), which applied under the People St program and was selected to partner with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, which is leading the initiative. LADOT installed the colorful surface treatment, perimeter planters, and other materials that make up the plaza space. The NoHo BID purchased the furnishings and will maintain the space and host public activities and events at the plaza. For more information on future happenings at this plaza, visit www.nohobid.com.
