Beverly Hills to Host Virtual  Design Charrettes for Connect Beverly Hills
BY Ana Figueroa October 8, 2020

The City of Beverly Hills is hosting virtual design charrettes on Oct. 14 and Oct. 15. Lest the term “charrette” not come readily to mind, Oxford Dictionary defines it as “a meeting in which all stakeholders in a project attempt to resolve conflicts and map solutions.” Its primary use now in the field of architecture and design stems from the late 19th century, when Parisian architecture students rushed their designs to instructors in little carts, or “charettes.”

During the upcoming virtual charrettes, the City will seek stakeholder feedback to shape project recommendations for Connect Beverly Hills: Meet Me on Wilshire and La Cienega. Connect Beverly Hills is a project to develop a series of streetscape plans and design standards for commercial corridors in the City. The initiative begins with Wilshire and La Cienega Boulevards, in preparation for the Metro Purple Line Extension. Two new subway stations are set to open in Beverly Hills. The first, at Wilshire/La Cienega in 2023; the second, at Wilshire/Rodeo in 2025.

During the upcoming Virtual Design Charrette, the project team will share ideas for the streetscape plan, design standards, and proposed Mobility Hub at Wilshire/North Gale. Draft designs will be based on public input received so far, including the recent design elements preference survey and Virtual Discovery Charrette held in June 2020. The community will have the opportunity to review the survey results and potential design options, and advance draft designs and amenities for the boulevards.

Stakeholders are encouraged to RSVP for the following dates:

Oct. 14, 5 p.m.- 7 p.m. Street Design and Amenities

Oct. 15, 4 p.m.- 6 p.m. Mobility Hub
