In the 1940s, the Jordan Downs housing development was built in an underserved section of Los Angeles, CA. Recently, the Michaels Organization and BRIDGE Housing have stepped in to revitalize Jordan Downs, with financing from Bank of America.
With 1,400 units of affordable housing and a 76% local-hire rate, the project is transforming the neighborhood and creating new opportunities for the people who live and work there.
