We work to increase the quality and availability of affordable housing for low-income residents in City Heights by preserving existing housing options, developing new ones, and protecting the rights of our residents.
We began buying rental property in the early 90s. Since then, our affordable housing communities became a launch point for work in the community. Our housing program is designed to provide quality housing, enhance neighborhoods, and encourage community pride and involvement. All of the apartments are located in various City Heights neighborhoods; the majority of which are for families considered very low to low income.
Currently, the City Heights CDC is a partner in four low income housing properties, a total of 406 units of affordable housing.
In February 2014 we completed the financing of ten smaller apartment buildings (132 units total) with our partners that we’ve owned since the early to mid 1990s. Our most recent development project, opened in July 2017, also done in partnership, is the award winning Talmadge Gateway. The property houses 60 formerly homeless seniors in 60 studio apartments designed in the Streamlined Modern architectural style.
Two other properties, Hollywood Palms (94 units) and Metro Villas (120 units), round out our portfolio. We work hard to provide affordable living that is high quality and fairly priced. Our team works to go above and beyond. They see their work as much more than just building apartments and collecting rent, we genuinely care about our tenants as though they were our own neighbors—because they are.
