Studio One Eleven

Lomita Plaza

Transforming a vacant lot in Downtown Lomita into a public plaza supporting pop-up retail, community events, and a pedestrian-oriented downtown.

Studio One Eleven is working with the City of Lomita to develop a 7,000 square foot vacant lot in the City’s downtown core into a pedestrian plaza and public parking lot designed to include outdoor seating, pop-up retail and food kiosks. Consistent with the recommendations in the Downtown Lomita Vision Plan, the improvements will provide an enhanced streetwall along Narbonne Avenue with shade, seating, drought-tolerant landscaping and trees, and vibrant pops of color in the heart of the downtown.

Among other benefits, the improvements will help reduce retail leakage and increase the diversity of uses in downtown, provide a stepping stone for a small business, and create marketing opportunities for the City by generating buzz around a formerly underutilized space.

Studio One Eleven is currently developing schematic designs for the lot.
