August 2017 53 Two projects by Los Angeles-based firm AHBE Landscape Architects—the award-winning South Park streetscape in downtown Los Angeles and the Monrovia Station Square Transit Village in the city of Monrovia—serve as examples of how streetscapes and open spaces can reinvigorate an urban community. At both projects, AHBE provided design solutions that respond to the communities' growing desire for more engaging and sustainable living. The design solutions prioritize pedestrian safety to encourage activity, which in turn promotes neighborhood interaction. In keeping with AHBE's commitment to sustainable design, the streetscape designs at both projects use stormwater infiltration, among other sustainable strategies.
