This is really exciting if it is true! Can anyone confirm this? will be documenting a large transit oriented development near downtown Los Angeles called MacArthur Park Apartments; a development by the nationally recognized affordable housing developer McCormack Baron Salazar. The 1st phase covers 22 months consisting of 90 family apartment units and 233 subterranean parking spaces that will be shared with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). The project includes 15,000 square feet of ground floor retail sitting on 1.62 acres of total land.

The project site consists of 10 separate buildings built over 3 levels of underground parking. Also being photo documented is the Westlake/MacArthur Park red line Metro Rail Line subway tunnel which the parking and apartment buildings sit atop of.

New public infrastructure such as sidewalks, curbs and gutters, street trees and underground utilities will all be documented. MacArthur Park Apartments is meant to serve as a catalyst to spur development within the local Community Redevelopment Agency adopted Project Area. MacArthur Park Apartments will have a positive economic impact on the neighborhood in the short and long term. The ground breaking for the development is Monday April 12, 2010, 10:00am -11:30 am at 7th & Alvarado Streets. currently has several other projects under contract including non-profit housing agencies such as WORKS and Los Angeles Housing Partnership.
