What is Space 134?The Glendale "Space 134" project is a concept study for a "freeway cap park" over the 134 Freeway from Central Avenue to Glendale Avenue. The freeway cap park would connect the community to the City's civic, cultural, and business core through public open space and pedestrian and bike friendly trails.
While the project is still in the initial concept stage, vision for the Space 134 has been broken down into various phases:
What will it look like?
Who is paying for it?
Currently the project is in the concept, planning and outreach stage. This phase is entirely funded by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) through their Compass Blueprint Grant which was awarded to the City of Glendale in 2012.
SCAG is a program that supports conceptual planning studies that promote its goal of
- focusing growth in existing and emerging centers and along major transportation corridors,
- to create significant areas of mixed use development and walkable communities, and
- to target growth around existing and planned transit stations.
The City will continue to pursue further grant opportunities from SCAG, Cal Trans and additional state and federal grants to fund more detailed planning studies, extensive community outreach, and economic pro formas to determine appropriate amenities for the park.
