LOS ANGELES-The national focus on infrastructure is creating a significant opportunity to improve city amenities and competitiveness, according to a recent panel on Landscape Infrastructure held by the Urban Land Institute in Los Angeles. Moderated by Gerdo Aquino of SWA Group landscape architects, the panel included: City of Los Angeles Council Member Ed Reyes; Chris Barton of Hudson Pacific Properties; Jerold Neuman of Sheppard Mullin; and Bill Wenk of Wenk Assoc.

“Landscape infrastructure is a viable concept for cities, planners and developers to consider as a solution to the growing pressures of sustainability and livability in an increasingly urbanized world,” said Aquino. “Corridors of infrastructure that move power, people, water and utilities (single-use) are underutilized, and should take on new programs that can enhance urban life such as open-space parks, natural habitats, and recreation venues while reducing greenhouse gas conditions and improving the sustainability of the city itself.”
