Reimagine the Heart of Los Angeles:
Visions for the Future of Pershing Square
Pershing Square Renew, in conjunction with Councilman José Huizar, is thrilled to present our four design finalists at a very special event April 28 — Reimagine the Heart of Los Angeles: Visions for the Future of Pershing Square — held at the Downtown Palace Theatre.
This will be the only live presentation of the finalists in the Pershing Square REnew’s design competition. They will each present their vision for Re-making Los Angeles’ most historic public space into everyone’s favorite downtown destination.
We invite all Angelenos to attend this FREE event. However, we only have room for 1000 and are filling up fast — so reserve your ticket today!
You’ll pick up your badge right in the heart of Pershing Square itself before crossing kitty-corner to the Downtown Palace Theatre for the program. There you’ll enjoy a pre-reception with free snacks, drinks and a visual display of the designers’ work.
The evening will include a dynamic mix of storytelling, provocative voices from downtown itself, and a glimpse of the future of urban landscapes and the positive changes surrounding them - once more with LA leading the way.
