Vaughan Davies Urban Designer/Architect EDAW
As an architect and urban designer, Vaughan Davies has produced dynamic urban plans for waterfront, retail/entertainment destinations and mixed-use environments with an emphasis on creating walkable transit-related neighborhoods in cities nationwide and abroad.Mr. Davies studied architecture in Cape Town, South Africa, where his architectural thesis and early working career initiated the award - winning revitalization of the city's historic Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.A resounding success story by any standards, and largely based upon his foresight to create more water - "to do a ‘water plan' and mix it all up, not have a tidy project", retaining all the existing working dock uses and juxtaposing them with the new development opportunities.Throughout his career, he has continued to develop visionary plans and designs with a solid basis in reality, both in their authenticity and in their ability to be implemented successfully.
Mr. Davies has spent the greater part of his professional career with Ehrenkrantz Eckstut & Kuhn Architects (both in NYC and LA), the author of many of their large scale urban design projects in most major US cities including; Boston's Charles River; Charleston's waterfront; San Juan; St Louis; San Diego; Honolulu and most notably Los Angeles.

"The last time we've done something as grand as this was building Bunker Hill," said Vaughan Davies, director of urban design with AECOM, a planning and engineering firm working on the project.
It would also convert some 100 acres currently covered in freeways or parking lots into green space, Davies said.
A meeting on Thursday, May 13, at the Caltrans headquarters will represent the first step in a public approval and entitlement process, though Davies acknowledges that the grand vision put together by AECOM will likely be pared down into a more feasible undertaking. He said the entitlement process could take five years.
Funding sources are also unclear, though Davies said the project will pursue everything from Measure R money, which voters approved in 2009 to support various transportation projects, to federal grant dollars and private investment.
Perhaps the most viable economic engine for the project, said Davies, stems from the so-called Alameda District Plan. Approved by the city in 1996, it entitled some 11 million square feet of space for commercial and residential development in the area east and north of Union Station.
Davies said project stakeholders will pursue a change in the plan so that its boundaries would stretch further west, encompassing the proposed Park 101 project area in order to encourage various kinds of new development.
The first piece would likely center around El Pueblo and Union Station, making a more pedestrian friendly walkway between the two landmarks, and capping the segment of the freeway between Main and Los Angeles streets, Davies said.
