The Crenshaw/LAX Line, a mass-transit light rail line project, traveled 8.5 miles to the Metro Green Line. The line runs generally north-south and connects the Crenshaw District and Leimert Park to Inglewood and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Planned by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority with funding set aside in Measure R, Lynn Capouya, Inc. (LCI) was selected by the WSCC/HNTB design-build team to provide landscape architectural design for five of the designated transit stations: Century/Aviation, Florence/Hindry, Florence/La Brea, Florence/West, and Crenshaw/Slauson. In addition, LCI is providing landscape design for the five TPSS facilities and streetscape from Aviation Boulevard to Vernon Avenue, 7.1 miles of the 8.5-mile corridor.

This facility in Huntington Beach is an innovative training center that develops the learning and technical skills of both cadets and students by providing an environment that best balance quality enhancements of both building design and landscape.
LCI achieved this goal by creating a park scenario for passive recreation, biddle and grinder courses for physical training activities and memorial as a focal point next to the building’s main entry. A number of prominent trees were protected through strict construction and management procedures while applicable stormwater techniques such as Modular Wetland Biofiltration systems were considered for the project.
