Clean Tech Corridor LA CRA RFP

REthink partnered with the Bedford Group to compete for a Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency RFP to develop a clean tech campus to anchor LA’s clean tech corridor. REthink assembled a design team of Gensler and the smaller creative firm of Escher Gunewardena Architecture to come up with a creative plan to not only create a clean tech campus but also for it to act as a catalyst and center of the envisioned clean tech corridor.

Two alternative approaches were presented with one consisting of over 310,000 sf of clean tech manufacturing space and the other consisting of 260,000 of clean tech manufacturing space and 67,000 of educational space related to clean tech. 2 mega watts of solar power, an onsite biodigester, a central power plant, bioswales and rainwater capture elements were also incorporated into the site. As a part of the proposal REthink garnered and received letters of interest in the project from numerous clean tech and educational tenants and partners.
