Affordable Housing
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.
Little Tokyo
Since 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.

Community Facilities

LTSC is part of the Budokan of Los Angeles (formerly the Little Tokyo Recreation Center) campaign, a community effort to build a multi-purpose recreation center in Little Tokyo.

Budokan of Los Angeles

We support the vision to build a recreation center in Little Tokyo as it would serve many varied purposes. It would help to support the businesses in Little Tokyo and downtown; it would provide a recreational space for young people and families to frequent; it would be a major tournament center for volleyball, basketball, and the martial arts; it would provide space for a senior citizen nutrition and fitness program; and it would provide space for community arts programs.
