Prototype House In South LA $165/sq


From Curbed LA – Lehrer Architects designed these two prototype houses in the old school South Park, just south of Downtown (plus three others, in SP, Vermont Knolls, and Watts), at just $165 a square foot, which includes all the landscaping and site work. They’re about 1,300 square feet and each designed for classic indoor-outdoor SoCal living; there are three different layouts, but they all have that trellised patio and some kind of yard space. Press materials say the houses take an “aggressively optimistic attitude to [their] neighborhood.” (And they’ll need it; the two we visited were in pretty blighted surroundings.) The prototypes were developed by Restore Neighborhoods Los Angeles, which originally formed in 2009 to buy up foreclosed properties in low-income neighborhoods and keep the areas stabilized. Four more are ready to go up as soon as there’s financing.

Large MidCity Purchase


Yes, LA has a Midtown, its actually called MidCity, and even though its border by affluent neighborhoods such as West Adams District, Lafayette Square, Victoria Park, and Hancock Park, MidCity is slightly ratchett.  Well that might be changing soon, the Midtown Shopping Center Associates (MTSCA) has acquired the land under Midtown Shopping Center plus two adjacent properties totaling 14.56 acres for $42.5 million from Catellus Development Corp. based out of Denver.  Well hopefully this means MidCity will spruce it up a bit.

Huge Ponte Vista Development Coming To San Pedro


Ponte Vista is a master planned development adjacent to the exclusive communities of Rancho Palos Verdes and Rolling Hills Estates, down in San Pedro.  The gated community is to be built on 61.5 acres of former Navy housing property at 26900 S. Western Ave.  The proposed planned community  has been scaled down from an original 2,300 homes proposed more than seven years ago to either 1,135 or 830 homes, including neighborhoods designated for active seniors.  The gated communities within Ponte Vista feature extensive open space amenities, including a central village green, numerous pool areas and a linear park enhanced with waterways.  The Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council voted on its official response to the project at last Thursday’s council meeting so at this point we’re just waiting to hear the outcome, will keep you posted.
