The project, which spans six blocks of Century Boulevard, consists of 135 residential units in a range of one-to-five-bedroom floor plans. The new apartments will be reserved for households earning at or below 60 percent of the area median income.
The low-rise structures are designed by SVA Architects.
The City of Los Angeles, which owns Jordan Downs, has engaged in a 10-year master plan to redevelop and expand the 1940s housing complex from 700 residential units to approximately 1,400 income-restricted homes.
As part of the master plan, the City has also extended Century Boulevard through the Jordan Downs site to Alameda Street, and engaged Primestor Development to build a new retail center along the eastern perimeter of the complex. Commercial tenants include a Nike store, a Smart & Final grocer, a Ross discount clothing store, and Blink Fitness.
