Revitalization Projects in South Central L.A.

Bank of America touts their lending programs that have funded redevelopment in South Central, particularly a mixed-use development at the corner of Adams and Central that includes a Fresh N' Easy market.

Yes, it's advertising, but the videos at Bank of America's site do give an interesting look at the redevelopment process:

From the transcript:

[Councilwoman] JAN PERRY: For me, Central Avenue was always the emotional center of the district. One project which I'm particularly proud is located at Adams and Central. It has a grocery store and retail on the ground floor, but it has housing for families on top.

[Meta Housing Corporation President] JOHN HUSKEY: This project had, counting construction and permanent, eleven different sources of money that all had to be reconciled. And through all of it, the Community Development business people sort of were, "don't worry, we're going to get through it."
