Bergamot Station Area Plan

The Bergamot Plan area is one of the most important evolving areas in Santa Monica because of its connection to the new Exposition Light Rail and its potential to transform 140 acres of former industrial area into a transit-oriented and walkable mixed-use district.  Building on the creative industries that are already concentrated in the area, the plan provides the development framework and design guidelines for the accommodation of new residential units and commercial space.   The conservation of  some existing areas including the renowned Art Center and the creation of  street and public space networks were key objectves of the plan. The planning process included extensive public and expert workshops.
