In January 2014, Metro broke ground on the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project , an 8.5-mile, eight-station light rail transit line running from the Metro Exposition Line at Crenshaw and Exposition Boulevards to the Metro Green Line at the Aviation/LAX Station. The Crenshaw/LAX Line will serve the cities of Los Angeles, Inglewood and El Segundo, and portions of unincorporated Los Angeles County. In addition to providing significant regional environmental benefits and supporting economic and employment growth, the project presents new opportunities for Joint Development that merge transit and neighborhood development to promote Transit Oriented Communities (TOC) along the corridor.

In anticipation of the planned completion of the Crenshaw/LAX Line in 2020, Metro prepared a Joint Development Strategic Plan to guide implementation of TOC activities. The Strategic Plan sought to:

  • Identify potential Opportunity and Exploratory Sites
  • Identify strategic public sector partnerships
  • Outline a robust community engagement process
  • Define a timeline for implementation

Expo/Crenshaw Station Opportunity Site

Metro is pursuing joint development of publicly-owned land at the Expo/Crenshaw Station along the Crenshaw/LAX Transit:

An additional Opportunity Site has been identified in close proximity to the under-construction Fairview Heights Station, located midway along the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project. More information on the Fairview Heights Station Opportunity Site may be found on the project webpage .

County Partnership

Parcel 2 of the Expo/Crenshaw Opportunity Site is County-owned and currently houses a Probation Department facility located at 3606 W. Exposition Boulevard in the City of Los Angeles, across the street from the planned entrance to the underground Expo/Crenshaw Station.

The County will vacate the facility in order to repurpose the site for transit-oriented development. Metro and the County are working jointly to administer joint development of the County and Metro properties.
