Representative Work

  • City of Los Angeles, Los Angeles World Airports – Automated People Mover (APM). Key member of the legal team advising on the APM at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The project reached commercial close on April 11, 2018 upon Los Angeles City Council’s unanimous approval of a $4.9 billion agreement with a developer comprised of ACS Infrastructure Development, Balfour Beatty, Bombardier Transportation, Fluor and HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions. The APM system will include six stations and up to nine electric powered trains, each with four cars, in simultaneous operation. The APM trains will travel on an elevated 2.25-mile long guideway, easing access into and out of the second largest airport in the United States (LAX) and connecting travelers to LA Metro’s Crenshaw Light Rail Line, intermodal transportation facilities and a consolidated rental car center. The developer will design, build and partially finance the APM system, and then operate and maintain the APM system over a 25-year period. LAWA’s APM is the first automated people mover system to be procured through an availability payment P3 delivery model. The project reached financial close on June 8, 2018. Ms. Jeon’s services include implementation and administration of the procurement process, including proposal evaluation and selection of the developer, drafting and negotiation of procurement, contract and ancillary documents, and contract administration. The APM project earned several awards including Project Finance International’s “Americas P3 Deal of the Year,” IJ Global’s “North American PPP Deal of the Year,” National Council of Public-Private Partnerships’ “Innovative Project of the Year,” and P3 Bulletin’s “Best Transit Project” and “Global P3 Project of the Year.”
  • City of Los Angeles, Los Angeles World Airports Consolidated Rental Car Center (ConRAC). Key member of the legal team advising on the nation’s largest consolidated rental car center at LAX. ConRAC will relocate and centralize car rental facilities away from the Central Terminal Area at LAX and provide direct access to major freeways. Ultimately, ConRAC will be connected to the APM system at LAX, which will provide travelers with quick access to the terminals. The estimated $1.3 billion (in design and construction) is being procured through an availability payment P3 delivery model. The selected developer will design and build the ConRAC and operate and maintain it for 25 years. The project reached commercial close on November 8, 2018 and financial close on December 6, 2018. Ms. Jeon’s services include implementation and administration of the procurement process, including addressing clarification requests and reviewing contract documents, drafting and negotiation of procurement, contract and ancillary documents, and contract administration.
