LTSC’s Real Estate Development Program has two main
areas of activity: 1) Little Tokyo Real Estate Development Projects and 2) the
API Housing Collaborative.
1993, LTSC has built affordable housing, community facilities and commercial
space in Little Tokyo, a small neighborhood in Downtown Los Angeles located
between Skid Row, the Arts District and the Civic Center. Little Tokyo is our
primary service area – both in terms of economic/community revitalization
activities and the provision of social services.
We have developed multiple
projects in Little Tokyo including the recently completed Far East Building, a
rehabilitation of a red-tagged historic building into 16 units of affordable
housing and two commercial storefronts.
API Housing Collaborative
The Asian Pacific Islander Housing Collaborative, a
component of our Real Estate Development Program, provides real estate
development technical assistance through a consortium of over 50 Asian Pacific
Islander community-based organizations. Through the Collaborative, we provide
technical assistance to – and in some cases, partner with – social service
organizations who have identified a great need to build affordable housing and
community facilities for their low-income communities, but lack the real estate
expertise to do so.
We have provided assistance to over 30 community-based
organizations, which has led to the completion of a dozen projects, totaling
approximately 350 units of affordable housing and 100,000 square feet of
community space. The affordable housing we have developed through the API
Housing Collaborative includes a broad range of housing types, including large
multifamily housing projects, housing for seniors, a group home for
developmentally disabled adults, transitional shelters for domestic violence
survivors, and supportive housing for formerly homeless individuals.
