What the judges had to say:  “This project is daring. The ground level is fantastic, breaking up all the dense, surrounding towers.”

“It achieves a very high level of sophistication that you don’t often see in North Hollywood. Tying together the Metro hub, with the other bus lines coming in, this is significant.”

“Someone really went for it here. They tried to put the urban grid back together while keeping mobility and making it pedestrian-centric. This one literally rises to the top in terms of innovative urbanism.”
