'Green' industrial park proposed for downtown Los AngelesOfficials hope to create jobs with a cluster of environmentally sustainable companies on a former brownfield site.
By Marla Dickerson Los Angeles Times September 24, 2008It's a vacant lot now, but Los Angeles officials hope to turn the former brownfield site downtown into a cluster of "green" manufacturing businesses to meet the region's growing demand for solar and wind power and other clean technologies.
The proposed CleanTech Manufacturing Center would be established on a city-owned 20-acre parcel in an industrial area near the intersection of 15th Street and Santa Fe Avenue, south of the 10 Freeway and west of the Los Angeles River.
The development, which city officials say could accommodate as much as 1 million square feet of industrial space, would essentially function as a green industrial park and incubator.
Officials are looking to generate jobs and turn a tattered pocket of Los Angeles into a hotbed of environmentally sustainable companies.
