This 90 unit low and very low income housing unit has run into opposition from local businesses that currently make use of the parking spaces where this proposed development would sit. There is confusion about the ownership rights of these spaces and it will most likely be settled in court.
That being said, the proposal is likely to bring much needed affordable workforce housing to an area that is quickly losing it.
The project will be named The 9th Street Lofts will be built by a partnership of LINC Housing and National Core Developments on land currently owned by the City of Los Angeles.
LINC is known for building and maintaining the services for affordable housing throughout Southern California. National Core is known most for hugely successful Century Village in Wilmington and for being a part of the One San Pedro Collaborative currently working to redevelop Rancho San Pedro.
The plan includes bringing in Harbor Community Clinic to build a 4,900 square foot dental care clinic for the low income individuals in San Pedro. The Federal Health Resources and Services Administration currently state there is currently only 1 dentist per 1,500 San Pedro residents. This is considered a severe shortage.
The 9th Street Lofts will provide permanent supportive housing services for its residents and some of the surrounding community including but not limited to:
Health & Wellness
- Health Management Assistance and Wellness Care
