El Segundo has revealed plans to overhaul the Smoky Hollow district, a 120-acre site between Pacific Coast Highway and historic Downtown El Segundo. The area has recently emerged as a creative hub. The new Smoky Hollow Specific plan will encourage more growth by allowing for adaptive reuse projects—a strategy that spurred major growth in Downtown Los Angeles. This will allow developers to convert industrial space into office space, increasing the existing office supply in the city by nearly 900,000 square feet by 2040. We sat down with Gregg McClain, El Segundo planning manager, to hear more about the new plan and how it will impact the city.
