Last year, the City of Los Angeles issued a request for proposals for the redevelopment of the Rancho San Pedro public housing facility near the L.A. Waterfront.  Later this week, the four finalists are scheduled to present their concepts to the community.

The four finalists include:

Although exact details of the four proposals have not been published, the Richman Group presentation points to a project that would replace and upgrade existing public housing while integrating market-rate housing, green space, retail, and other community amenities.  The request for proposals specifically called for mixed-income housing - including single-family and multi-family opportunities.

A conceptual massing study shows a collection of mid-rise structures, with the potential for taller buildings closer to the waterfront.

The presentations are scheduled to occur on Wednesday, May 30 at 5:00 pm at the Port of L.A. Boys & Girls Club at 100 W. 5th Street in San Pedro (register here).

The 21-acre Rancho San Pedro site was built as housing in the 1940s.  Its 478 housing units are owned and operated by the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles.

The Rancho San Pedro project is the latest in a series of incremental changes in San Pedro and along the L.A. Waterfront, including the upcoming redevelopment of the Ports o' Call Village and a new SpaceX factory planned at the Port of Los Angeles.
