Joint Development - San Fernando Valley

North Hollywood

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 April 8, 2017, the developer team and Metro hosted a community open house at Groundwork Coffee to present a project recap for the site and to kick off the next phase of the project. There will be many opportunities to provide your input on the project coming up; please contact Dana Tinio at or 213.922.2216 to be informed of upcoming workshops led by the Developer and sign up for our mailing list .


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.
