Wilmington Waterfront Promenade Taking Shape

Port of Los Angeles

Last month, officials from the Port of Los Angeles presented an update on the progress of the $77.3-million Wilmington Waterfront Promenade. The project commenced construction in November 2020 and is transforming a previously vacant industrial area near the Banning's Landing Community Center into nine acres of new public open space. A new waterfront walkway will connect various amenities, including a public pier, dock, children's playground, public restrooms, and a parking lot.

According to the presentation, the construction is expected to be completed by December of this year. Sasaki Associates, Inc. is the design firm responsible for the Promenade, which also involves realigning Water Street to accommodate a nearby freight rail right-of-way that runs north of the park area. This adjustment will create a connection to another planned waterfront green space called the Avalon Promenade and Gateway, which will be linked via a 400-foot-long pedestrian bridge. The City of Los Angeles intends to seek Federal funding for this $65-million project, scheduled to commence in Winter 2024 and open by Summer 2027.

Together, these two projects will provide Wilmington with 12 acres of new open space and will establish a connection between Harry Bridges Boulevard and Avalon Boulevard with the waterfront.

Jilk Heavy Construction is handling concrete, pile, and marina while Sully Miller Contracting is the GC over seeing work on the project.
