The community is invited to attend a groundbreaking on Feb. 28 for the Florence Mills Apartments, which will provide 74 units of affordable housing for veterans and families at the corner of Central Avenue and Martin Luther King Boulevard.
Increasing the supply of affordable housing is a key priority for Councilman Curren Price because District 9 is one of the most underserved areas in Los Angeles.
“Every individual—regardless of their background, income, zip code or immigration status—is deserving of safe, clean and quality housing,” Price said. “We must expand access to affordable housing to keep our neighbors from losing their homes and end up living on the streets.”
The latest project will pay homage to Florence Mills and the Jazz culture on Central Avenue. The application period for these affordable housing units will not open until 2020. However, during the groundbreaking, the public can obtain general information on the apartments.
