The Beverly Triangle Plaza Project is coming back and the city wants to hear from you.
Site of proposed Gathering Space at Beverly and Robertson
After the original design was rejected by residents, the City of West Hollywood is now soliciting feedback so that it may begin a redesign of the project while retaining most of the existing parking capacity.
The “Beverly Triangle Plaza” (aka Beverly or Bonner Gathering Place) would activate roughly 5,000 square feet of public space with new amenities like landscaped open space, shade, seating, and public art.Before the city beginnings developing new concepts for review at future community workshops, they want to hear from you!

In the current aggressive atmosphere of chaos, one seeks moments of respite, simplicity in a patch of grass, a few flowers and perhaps a tree. Nothing elaborate or expensive or seeking to build a reputation for some erstwhile artistic striver. Please return to authenticity and simplicity.
Ditto for West Hollywood Park which should embark on a redo as well.
Thank you for posting this information and link. I was able to provide my input easily and was glad to take advantage of the opportunity!
I was thinking, why don’t we have a fund raiser for star bucks on west mount once it’s vacant. It was very popular and since it will be closed we can open it up as a gay social coffee place like before. Talk to the city council about my idea!
Please look for good examples from around the world to guide us.
Each time we attempt to be at the front edge of creativity in WeHo it becomes a short lived disaster.
There are parks (large and small) around the world that have managed to be relevant for decades.
Spend the money on homelessness instead as this is only destined to be a beautifully, well-designed, award winning homeless encampment.
I would like to see transparency on how the money is spent. The 100 million dollar park doesn’t seem like it should have cost 100 million. Is this tax payer funded 100% or???? The general contractor should show all expenses and transparently account for all the funds spent.
200 million plus…
Reopen the empty space of Starbucks on westmount once it closes. Open it again as a gay social coffee chat. It is popular.
Hopefully the community can get beyond the previous debacle which was worse than the Shards on Norwich. What seems odd is that the Arts Manager’s education began at The College of Charleston in Charleston S.C. For those that have not visited this amazing city which in addition to its historic past, is noted for having the Most Respected and Productive Mayor in the U.S, Joe Riley who served 10 terms from 1975 to 2016. He resurrected the city from the dust where it had crumbling buildings plus a largely unemployed and unskilled black component. These unskilled learned the trades to… Read more »
Anything that is the complete opposite of what was presented previously. God that was hideous. Shade trees, flowering plants, benches (divided so the homeless won’t be sprawled out on them), some art feature..nothing to out there like the last design. Open enough that pedestrians can look around at the world around them and passersby can see into the green space for safety reasons.
Exactly! Urban open spaces should soften the landscape rather than exacerbate the sense of disconnect from the environment. I know the City wants to impose art that they consider is “challenging” but I think we need anything that soothes rather than visually antagonized the public.
