Affordable Housing Aimed at Artists Cropping Up In LA.
"Growing recognition of the role artists and performers play in greater Los Angeles has led to a small flurry of affordable-housing projects," according to a story from Southern California Public Radio. These projects include a 72-unit complex in Hollywood, a 70-unit Glendale "Arts Colony," and another 48 units in San Pedro for artists.
Still, in a growing city the size of Los Angeles there's always demand for affordable housing. "One area that artists say needs more affordable housing is the place whose name is inspired by them: Downtown's Arts District. Visual artist Tim Keating said rising rents are pushing out more artists than drawing them there, leaving a void downtown," KPCC reports.
