Joint Development - San Fernando Valley

North Hollywood

The North Hollywood (NoHo) Station is a major transit hub in the San Fernando Valley, with over 24,000 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 September and October 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 3/2/15.  Based on the proposals received, a short-list of developers received a full Request for Proposals (RFP) on 12/4/15.  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.

In June 2016, Metro entered into a Short Term Exclusive Negotiation Agreement and Planning Document (“Short Term ENA”) with a developer team comprised of the Trammel Crow Company and Greenland USA ("Developer"). This Short Term ENA was extended an additional 6 months in December 2016. The Short Term ENA has provided time for Metro and the Developer to evaluate evolving transit infrastructure requirements, refine the project site plan and evaluate financing opportunities in greater depth.

In March 2017, the Developer and Metro will begin re-engaging with the community to present a proposal for the site and kick off the next phase of the project. We invite you to attend a community open house to be held at Groundwork Coffee on Saturday, April 8, from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM. Coffee and pastries will be served!


The 12.45-acre site surrounding the Sepulveda Station is currently used as a surface park-and-ride lot for Orange Line transit patrons. The Metro property is the interior and largest parcel on a block bounded by Sepulveda Boulevard, Erwin Street, the San Diego Freeway, and the Metro right-of-way.

Currently, the Los Angeles Department of City Planning is undertaking an effort to create several Transit Neighborhood Plans (TNPs) for 10 station areas in LA County, including the Sepulveda Station. Once this process is complete, the Joint Development Team will initiate an outreach effort focusing on preparing Development Guidelines for the Metro-owned property surrounding the station.
