Much of Tokyo is like this:
That's being generous. Most of Tokyo's neighborhoods look like alleyways, and they are lined with multiple buildings that feature driveways or car ports... which was the whole point of me bringing it up.

Tokyo. Mostly terrible design. All post-war. BUT. Highest transit ridership and probably the most rail-induced pedestrian activity dispersed across a wide geographic area.

So given what has been laid out, is there really no hope for LA's Koreatown?


I don't think we'll ever see wall-to-wall development (or even mixed-use), but I do envision mid-rises with ground-floor commercial spaces along 3rd, 6th, 8th, and Olympic. Then build a subway along Pico or down Western, narrow streets and paint crosswalks at all intersections (the latter could happen literally overnight), and you'll have created the bones for a functionally urban neighborhood. Future developments would eventually adapt (e.g. little to no parking) to this new environment.
