The Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners has approved a $51.9 million construction contract for the Wilmington Waterfront Promenade Project on the Los Angeles Waterfront, with construction expected to start in fall.
Creating a “window on the waterfront” for the Wilmington community, the promenade project includes the realignment of Water Street parallel to the existing railroad tracks and construction of a community park adjacent to Banning’s Landing Community Center, along with a waterfront promenade, public pier, public dock, public restroom with green roof, playground and parking lots.
Work along Water Street includes utilities, street work, grading, paving, striping, lighting and landscaping. Other project improvements to the nine-acre site include irrigation, signage and furnishings such as public seating, bike racks and drinking fountains.
The project is expected to be completed in 2023.
