TODAY AT THE SITE

The original 167 acre site has been divided for development in several phases. The first saw the construction of the new Kaiser Hospital and Medical Facility, The second was Downey Landing. The third was the Downey Studios which evolved into the Promenade at Downey. There are still two phases of development  to be completed.

Promenade at Downey
