The North Hollywood (NoHo) Station is a major transit hub in the San Fernando Valley, with over 28,000 daily boardings. Metro owns 15.6 acres that include the termini of the Red Line subway and the Orange Line bus rapid transit, along with 957 transit parking spaces. At the heart of the rapidly developing NoHo Arts District, the site has the potential to be a transformative center for the area and an iconic example of the TOC approach to development.
In 2015, Metro's Joint Development Team undertook a community outreach process that included meetings with local stakeholders, residents, business and property owners, community organizations, and public agencies. From the community input shared during this process, Metro developed the Guide for Development for the North Hollywood site. The Metro Board adopted the Guide for Development at its December 3rd, 2015 meeting.
A two-phased joint development project solicitation process began with a Request for Interests and Qualifications (RFIQ) , issued March 2, 2015. Based on the proposals received, a short-list of developers received a full Request for Proposals (RFP) on December 4, 2015. Metro received one proposal submitted jointly by the short-listed developers, Trammell Crow Company and Greenland USA. The TCC/Greenland proposal presented a range of development opportunities for use of the 15.6-acre site. Both proposals included a large central square and community gathering space tying together the West and East sides of Lankershim, new mixed-use development and pedestrian and bike paths.
On May 25, 2017, the Metro Board approved the next phase of the project: an Exclusive Negotiations Agreement with the developer partner Trammell Crow Company and Greenland USA.
Over the remainder of 2017 and into 2018, there will be many opportunities to provide your input on the project as it moves through the CEQA and entitlement processes.
