On the Boards
The future looks bright. PowerGrid LA firms have just over 670 developments on the boards totaling 135 million square feet. While a third of that is multi-family residential, nearly half of the firms say they’re looking at mixed-use projects, with office, retail, and public-space work keeping them busy, too.
