First Phase of Jordan Downs Gets Underway

Los Angeles
Published on June 7, 2017

A ceremonial groundbreaking was held on June 5 for the first phase of new residential construction at Jordan Downs, a 1950s-era public housing development in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, that is being redeveloped by TMO and our non-profit partner, BRIDGE Housing.

Phase 1A, developed by BRIDGE Housing, will consist of 115 affordable rental apartments in 12 buildings on 3.15 acres. Designed to a LEED Silver certification level, the property will maximize solar opportunities, energy efficiency and environmental sustainability, and will have an on-site management office along with community spaces such as a kitchen, lounge and computer room.

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 team of BRIDGE Housing and The Michaels Organization was selected as Master Developer of Jordan Downs in 2012.
