Primestor Development Breaks Ground on 115,000 SF Shopping Center in Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES — Primestor Development is breaking ground today for Jordan Downs Plaza, a shopping center located within the Jordan Downs project in the Watts area of Los Angeles.
As part of the Jordan Downs revitalization project, the shopping center will bring 115,000 square feet of retail space to the area. Situated on 9.5 acres, the open-air project will include a full-service supermarket, fitness center and a variety of local and national retailers.
Jordan Downs Plaza is a public/private partnership, and the project would not be possible without a financial investment of the federal government through its New Market Tax Credit Program and the conveyance of property by ground lease from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles. Financing for the project is provided by Federal Realty Investment Trust, Genesis LA, Chase, California Statewide Communities Development Corp. and Los Angeles Development Fund.
