The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is considering agreements with two developers to build affordable housing and community facilities on properties surrounding Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station.

The County's Chief Executive Office has recommended that the Supervisors approve an exclusive negotiating agreement with LINC Housing Corporation for properties at 1854 E. 118th Street, 12717, 12625 and 12611 S. Willowbrook Avenue.  Although exact details of the proposed development have not been specified, it would include housing for low-income families, special needs individuals, community space and a child care center.

On the opposite side of the Metro Rail tracks, the Supervisors will consider a second recommendation to enter into an exclusive negotiating agreement with Atlanta-based Integral Development for properties at 11739 Holmes Avenue, 11731 Holmes Avenue and 1758 117th Street.  This project would also include apartments for low-income and special needs households, as well as associated community space.

Both developments emerge as a new specific plan for 312 acres of land surrounding the light rail station, highlighted by a major expansion of the MLK Community Hospital, the CDU private university, and other potential transit-oriented developments.
