The shopping center is a vital part of the redevelopment of Jordan Downs. Opened in 1944, it hasn’t seen any new commercial development in more than 50 years, according to Los Angeles City Councilmember Joe Buscaino, whose district includes the public housing project.
Called Jordan Downs Plaza, the retail center will sit at Alameda and Century Boulevard, with storefronts encircling a central parking lot. It will hold shops, a grocery store, a gym, and dining options, along with “community living room”-inspired gathering areas and a “pedestrian-friendly” environment, says an announcement from Nadel Architects.
