Completed Projects: No Ho Arts Park
About 20 years ago, the NoHo Arts District was a decaying area badly damaged by the Northridge Earthquake. Today, NoHo is a thriving theater, art and entertainment community. Coffee shops, restaurants and eclectic retail shops line the streets.
NoHo is conveniently located within walking distance of the Metro Red Line subway station and bus lines. Those transit points are where the transformation began. LANI projects in those areas created a Transit Arts Park, landscaping and decorative tree plantings, banners and illuminated bus shelters with information kiosks and kiosk art.
Development of this commercial district began near the site of the original LANI projects and has expanded from there. Retail shops, theaters, restaurants and other businesses moved in as the physical setting transformed. The Academy of television Arts and Sciences also has its home in NoHo. Every May, NoHo hosts the two-day NoHo Theatre and Arts Festival with live music on outdoor stages and free plays in its theatres. Every fall, the NoHo Scene Festival draws about 10,000 visitors to sample the neighborhood’s artistic venues.
