Densifying LA - November 10, 2016
Los Angeles is on course to overtaking New York as the densest city in the US by 2025 – with population
projections over the next decade potentially escalating to 12-16 million persons from our more modest
population of 4-million today. Despite its sprawling and suburban reputation, these projections cast
LA in a new role – as a very urban environment: one accommodating more people per square mile
than San Francisco, Miami, and even New York.
With innumerable implications for the city, its built environment, infrastructures, resources,
regulations, and the impact on our very communities, LAHq has composed a panel of local experts –
developers and city planners - to discuss this impending densification and speculate on appropriate
and commensurate development models.
