The Northside Development, also known as the bow tie, is an approximately 70-acre section of land located north of Westchester Parkway in which Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) will be developing commercial and open space in the coming years. The commercial area includes 901,000 square feet of allowable development for a variety of commercial applications. Nearly 13 acres of land designated for recreational areas will also be built as part of the community benefits of the project.
The project will be built to achieve a minimum Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver rating. It will incorporate electrical vehicle chargers for 10% of total parking (20% future infrastructure) and will optimize energy and water efficiency during both the design/construction and operations/maintenance phases.
LAWA plans to award the contract in the near future.
