Following the successful completion of its master plan study for First Street in downtown Los Angeles and Boyle Heights, Suisman Urban Design and its partners Rios Clementi Hale Studios and Campbell & Campbell are poised to begin the next stage of the project in early 2007. The next phase will involve implementation of certain pieces of the master plan, and the development of new city standards to ensure design compliance over the long term. Project Restore, the non-profit arm of the City of Los Angeles which led the renovation of City Hall, is again leading this important revitalization effort. Funding participants include the Federal government through the office of Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard; MTA; and the Community Redevelopment Agency, Planning Department and Transportation Department of the City of Los Angeles.
