Gentrification is the biggest threat to the stability of the Crenshaw community & the biggest proposed gentrification project is the Crenshaw Mall redevelopment. It is the biggest proposed development being considered in the City of Los Angeles. The majority of the new construction is NOT to renovate the retail section or add stores, but rather to add 961 market-rate condos/apartments unaffordable to the surrounding community. Additionally, the Chicago-based developer's proposed local hire "goal" is just 10% - an insult. For more info about the project see our statement: "Crenshaw Mall Redevelopment: 'Urban Cleansing' by Another Name"
Over the past 3 meetings we've discussed how the mall redevelopment and other new developments could be done in a manner that addresses the needs and desires of the community. Join with us on Tuesday night as we bring it all together and present draft recommendations for your consideration.
We will also discuss our tremendous victory in defeating SB 827 - the pro-gentrification bill pushed by San Francisco-area State Senator Scott Wiener.
