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:
- Abode Communities, the Los Angeles-based nonprofit responsible for the redevelopment of the Dana Strand complex in Wilmington, has teamed with Brookfield Residential, Mercy Housing, and Azure Development.
- Holland Partner Group, which is currently in the midst of construction of a large mixed-use complex in Downtown San Pedro.
- New Economics for Women, which has built two housing communities in San Pedro over the past three years.
- The Richman Group, along with co-developers National CORE, and Century Housing. Other project team members of the project team include SVA Architects, City Fabrick, the Hope through Housing Foundation, Cal State University Dominguez Hills, the Harbor Community Clinic, Harbor Interfaith Services, the Boys & Girls Club of the Los Angeles Harbor, and Pacific Gateway.
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.
