Whenever we consider a new development, we think about health, wellness and a connection to natural open places.
In this neighborhood, our commitment to public space is well documented. Related provided some $57 million towards the development of Grand Park — a 12-acre urban oasis just steps from our front door. With mostly sunny weather and year round programming, people come from around the area and across the city to enjoy the park’s water features, private spaces, performance areas and wide green lawns.
Across the street, a not-so-secret garden awaits, with a lush lawn and shade trees neatly tucked between The Broad Museum and The Emerson. A neighborhood favorite.
A block in the other direction lies Music Center Plaza, an immaculate public space with a range of dining options, exquisite gardens, an iconic fountain and more views of Grand Park.
In a town that isn’t known for walkability, The Grand will be the central development in a neighborhood that is entirely pedestrian-friendly. One can imagine strolling from the park to an array of museums, restaurants and cafés — all within three square blocks.
And perhaps the ultimate expression of open public space will be the highly-anticipated plaza at The Grand, the centerpiece of Frank Gehry’s design.
Here multiple access points will converge in an airy ‘outdoor urban room’ — a center bar where visitors will sample food from our kitchens, enjoy a favorite beverage, or simply take in the scene in this elevated, extraordinary place.
Throughout the year, special events and programming are planned to capture the imagination and attention of our guests.
