- 2020 Readers' Choice Finalist (Jordan Downs): Public Housing Redevelopment | AFFORDABLE HOUSING FINANCE
Cedar Grove at Jordan Downs consists of 115 affordable rental apartments in 12 buildings on 3.15 acres. Designed to a LEED Silver certification level, Cedar Grove maximizes solar opportunities, energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. Amenities include a community room, in-unit laundry, a community park with BBQs, and on-site management
This is the first phase of new residential construction for the revitalization of Jordan Downs, a 1950s-era public housing development in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles. In 2008, the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA), in conjunction with residents and a broad spectrum of stakeholders, initiated a plan to rebuild Jordan Downs into a mixed-use, mixed-income community: a vibrant urban village that will serve as a national model for the renewal of public housing.
The long-term, public-private effort will rebuild 700 units of distressed public housing and create, at a minimum, another 710 new homes with a range of affordability, along with a new community and recreation center, approximately 115,000 square feet of retail, nine acres of green space, and neighborhood programs and services to improve the lives of current and future generations.
