Is LAX Finally Taking Off? (NON-MEMBERS)

After many false starts and many battles with neighbors, Los Angeles International Airport is, as the public relations campaign goes, "happening." By many measures, "happening" is an understatement. While capacity is constrained by covenants with the community, LAX is undergoing an $8 billion project to do revamp terminal interiors, build a new midfield satellite, add aesthetic enhancements, and, eventually, build major new additions like a consolidated car rental facility and a long-awaited people mover. At the same time, property on the north side of the LAX campus is slated for commercial development. 

As incremental as these changes are, they will result in a transformation of one of Los Angeles' and the Westside's greatest civic assets. Please join WUF to discuss the ultimate impacts of these projects: What do they mean for the surrounding communities? How will Los Angeles' economy and status as a global city benefit? What are the architectural and planning considerations that go into projects of this magnitude? Will LAX ever be more than "nine disconnected terminals joined by a traffic jam"?
