This summer, the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) together with Primestor Development broke ground on a 115,000 square-foot retail shopping center that will soon become the Jordan Downs Plaza. Jordan Downs Plaza is a part of the Jordan Downs revitalization project, one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in the United States. The open-air shopping center will include a full-service supermarket, a fitness center, and several local and national retailers. In addition, the Watts community and its residents are expected to benefit from hundreds of jobs and a new urban village aimed at improving overall quality of life. EPS was pleased to assist HACLA with ground lease evaluation and developer negotiations. Details about the project are available here:
