A MAJOR MILESTONE FOR PROMENADE 2035

Westfield’s Promenade 2035 Project is fully consistent with the Warner Center 2035 (WC2035) Plan and is designed to help minimize environmental impacts by bringing housing, commercial, office and entertainment together in one location next to transit to encourage walkability and reduce the need for cars.

Now, a major milestone has been reached in the Promenade 2035 process with the release of the Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR), which layers additional information on top of the detailed environmental analysis already conducted as part of the WC2035 Plan. The Supplemental Draft EIR for the Promenade 2035 Project represents a thorough analysis from a team of world-class experts in their fields of transportation, noise, lighting, and air quality.

We are pleased to report that the Supplemental Draft EIR confirms that this Project furthers WC2035’s goal to be one of the cleanest and greenest community plans in all of Los Angeles.

The following areas were analyzed as part of this Supplemental Draft EIR:

  • Aesthetics/Visual Qualities and Views, Light and Glare, and Shading
  • Energy
  • Hazards and Hazardous Materials
  • Hydrology and Water Quality
  • Public Services
  • Population, Housing and Employment
  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions
  • Air Quality
  • Land Use
  • Traffic/Access and Parking
  • Cultural Resources
  • Tribal Cultural Resources
  • Noise
  • Utilities and Service Systems

Highlights of the Promenade 2035 Supplemental Draft EIR include:

  • Approximately one million square feet less dense than analyzed in the WC2035 Plan.
  • Lower in height than what is permitted for the property today.
  • Contributing approximately $7 million in Mobility Fees to help fund transportation improvement measures as well as additional funds for schools, public art and area improvements as required by the WC2035 Plan.
  • Fully analyzed the proposed Entertainment and Sports Center in the areas of noise, lighting, traffic, parking and construction, and addresses impacts through sound and lighting design features and an Event Management Plan.
  • Providing additional transportation improvements to enhance circulation and flow in and around the Promenade site, getting cars off the street and into the property efficiently, as well as commitments to reduce water, energy and waste during construction and operations.

Promenade 2035 has been planned and designed with you and for you, to minimize impacts while bringing forward the new vision for the Warner Center. See below for the many ways to obtain more information about Promenade 2035’s Supplemental Draft EIR.
