Leimert Park Homes

Leimert Park Homes

This is a workforce first-time homebuyer project, built years ago. We obtained site control then sought funding from the city of Los Angeles Housing Department. We then acquired the land, financed, designed, and built this 9,000-square foot area of affordable housing in historic Leimert Park. The design consists of six, 2-story single-family dwellings, each including 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a 2-car detached garage. Four units were purchased by single-parent women with at least two children. The homes are now worth 4.5 times their purchase price of two decades before and are almost paid off. Our purpose with the project was to demonstrate how to transform under-utilized land into affordable for-sale homes, provide families with a long-term fixed cost of housing, give children a place to call their home, and create family wealth.
