LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
Ponte Vista, meaning “Bridge View,” is currently one of the largest residential developments in Los Angeles. This highly anticipated project is located within the community of San Pedro, just south of Palos Verdes. Since 2005 the project has evolved multiple times, and in its approved form offers nearly 700 housing units on 61.5 acres. Themed landscaped amenities throughout six neighborhoods will showcase San Pedro’s rich history and culture as a seaport community.
Grading for the overall site was a challenge and required a combined rough graded and mass graded design for the seven planning areas. The project includes complicated wall designs utilizing three different retaining wall types, some reaching heights upwards of 45 feet. Water quality mitigation was provided through two subsurface infiltration galleries and two drywells which together serve as the backbone water quality solution for the project.
