First look at plans for phase III of the Jordan Downs redevelopment (Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles)

From Urbanize Los Angeles:

In 2017, Los Angeles city officials joined with The Michaels Organization and Bridge Housing Corporation to launch the redevelopment of the Jordan Downs public housing complex in Watts.  In the five years that have followed, blocks of 1940s apartment buildings have been demolished, making way for an "urban village" with more than 700 homes, nine acres of park space, and a shopping center known as Freedom Plaza.

Now, the Los Angeles Housing Authority and Bridge Housing are turning their attention to remainder of the Jordan Downs complex, tapping KTGY Architecture + Planning to draft a master plan for the redevelopment of the 14 acres bounded by Grape Street, Laurel Street, 97th Street, and 99th Place.

The third phase of the Jordan Downs project, which will itself be implemented in phases, calls for the construction of more than 500 affordable rental units, as well as 75 for-sale homes.  Plans call for a series of low-rise apartment buildings toward the eastern side of the site, with smaller townhome-style buildings fronting Grape Street to the west.
