Taylor Yard is a 242-acre former rail yard site located on the Los Angeles River, just north of Elysian Park and the I-5/Arroyo Seco Parkway intersection. Metro owns or has operating rights to approximately 76.5 acres of Taylor Yard and is developing 17.75 acres into a mixed-use neighborhood with developers McCormack Baron Salazar and LA Urban Homes.  Metro’s 17.75 acres is being developed as seven separate projects on subdivided lots in seven distinct phases, all held together by roadways and open space, as indicated below. As currently contemplated, this community will include 95 market-rate condominiums, 305 affordable apartments, and 24,980 square feet of retail space. Currently, five of the projects are complete, and two have yet to start construction.  Each project is being constructed and operated by the developers under separate ground leases with Metro.
