Before 1925, the area we think of today as the Miracle Mile district of Mid-Wilshire was an “unpaved farm road” that meandered through fields of bean crops and dairy farms. However, in the early part of that decade, the Wilshire area began seeing substantial development in a bid to rival the commercial bustle of Downtown LA.
The area’s developer, A.W. Ross, brought a brilliant approach to the district that would become the Miracle Mile. He envisioned that traffic would come to the area not by pedestrians on foot, but by automobiles driving there. As such, he implemented dedicated left turn lanes and timed traffic lights — the first of both of these ever seen in the United States.
The result was a smashing success, earning the area its nickname and forever changing the way commercial districts were planned across America’s urban cities.
