Best Mixed-Use

This development is a paradigm for mixed-use development in Southern California. Comprised of a light-rail station, retail, affordable housing and restaurant space with sidewalk café-style dining, this urban village contains 374 rental apartments (20% dedicated to lower income families), including unfinished ‘artist loft’ units in the adaptively reused and restored Hall of Justice Building. Additionally, the project includes the reuse and restoration of the historically significant YMCA Building, which now houses 120 single-room occupancy units. In order to maximize the available site area, the adjacent railroad right-of-way was covered in long-span construction; and units were built directly over the train tracks. Within the garage is a dedicated ‘shell’ for the MetroRail Blue Line Train Station, linking this area to downtown Los Angeles
