Cedar Grove Becomes First Part of Billion-Dollar Redevelopment of Los Angeles Public Housing (HA City of Los Angeles)

From HUD's PD&R Edge:

In June 2020, the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) completed the first phase of a multibillion-dollar redevelopment of Jordan Downs, one of the city’s largest housing projects. This first phase, constructed in partnership with BRIDGE Housing, is a 115-unit residential complex known as Cedar Grove. More than half of the apartments are reserved for Jordan Downs residents, and the remainder are available to tenants earning less than 60 percent of the area median income (AMI). When all phases are completed, the redevelopment will offer more than twice as many apartments as Jordan Downs, including a one-to-one replacement of the original public housing units, additional affordable units, and some market-rate units. The new development will also feature new commercial outlets and community spaces. Cedar Grove, along with the entire redevelopment project, will also help revitalize the surrounding Watts neighborhood, a low-income community south of downtown Los Angeles whose residents are almost exclusively people of color.
