Cedillo Breaks Ground on Hoover Triangle Project
Transforming a transportation hub in the University Park Community in CD1

Los Angeles—Councilmember Gil Cedillo broke ground on the Hoover Triangle transportation hub project on Hoover Street and South Union Avenue. The project evolved from residents and businesses advocating for simple irrigation repairs at the triangle and provide lighting and benches for transit riders.

A series of community conceptual design workshops were conducted by a student team from USC’s School of Architecture, which resulted in the underlying conceptual design for the Hoover Triangle Plaza. The project elements will include historic security/pedestrian lighting at the bus stops and within the plaza, a multi-use performance area, benches, trash receptacles, drought tolerant landscaping, street trees and trees within the plaza, new sidewalks and ADA compliant curb ramps, outdoor tables/seating for both adults and children, bike racks, colored concrete paving.

“These are the types of projects we love to do in our district,” stated Councilmember Cedillo. “The seed was planted by community members, and our staff went above and beyond to completely repurpose what is now a dirt field. The design of the triangle was not only created with the community in mind, it was designed by them. It’s the type of project that when completed, we’ll point to and say ‘WE’ did that,” mentioned Councilmember Cedillo.

The Hoover Triangle Plaza project funding is currently estimated at $575,000 and will be completed by July 2017.

Councilmember Gil Cedillo currently represents the 1st Council District, which includes all or parts of the neighborhoods of Glassell Park, Cypress Park, Highland Park, Mt. Washington, Solano Canyon, Sycamore Grove, Elysian Park, Echo Park, Westlake, Angelino Heights, Temple Beaudry, Lafayette Park, Chinatown, Forgotten Edge, Lincoln Heights, Montecito Heights, Pico Union, Adams-Normandie, University Park, Mid Cities and Mac Arthur Park.
