At Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE Excitement Multiplies

Since the beginning of civilization, great gathering places have been the heart and soul of a community

Designed by Rios Clementi Hale Studio, the 40,000 square foot open air plaza, capable of hosting special events, community gatherings, cultural festivals and live performances is centrally located in the very heart of L.A. LIVE. Nokia Plaza contains over 20,000 square feet of LED signage including six 75 foot towers and a 22' x 40' display. The plaza space has been designed with flexibility as well as state-of-the-art "plug-and-play" technology to accommodate broadcast events, large celebrations, festivals, outdoor concerts and other live programming. The ability to close 11th Street/Chick Hearn Court (which runs between Nokia Plaza and STAPLES Center) during non-peak hours is another major amenity as it connects STAPLES Center with L.A. LIVE. When closed, this provides a pedestrian friendly campus as well as a prime location for red carpet arrivals for events taking place at any of the venues. Nokia Plaza will be the premier location for outdoor events with the flexibility to transform from the site of a daytime farmer's market to a locale for promotional activities tied to an evening concert.
