What Would Los Angeles Look Like Without Redevelopment Agencies?

It can be difficult to get a grasp on just what the effect of redevelopment agencies has been on Culver City and the rest of Los Angeles over the years. But a recent post on the CurbedLA blog offered a startling visual representation of the effect of redevelopment agencies on the city's landscape. The picture above is what the Los Angeles skyline would look like if none of the projects assisted by the Community Redevelopment Agency of LA had ever happened.
 

As previously reported, this December the California State Supreme Court upheld the legality of ABx1-26 -- California Governor Jerry Brown's bill to abolish redevelopment agencies statewide. The move puts at risk Parcel B in downtown Culver City and many other city projects funded all or in part by the city's redevelopment agency.

 

The article points out that "the CRA/LA was a big player in the Hollywood renaissance of the last decade, and it orchestrated the still-maligned redevelopment of Bunker Hill that began in 1959 and created a good chunk of the [downtown Los Angeles] skyline."
