The Banning, our first HHH development in the City of Los Angeles and a proud moment for Century, broke ground yesterday. For those that weren’t able to join us, it was a spectacular event that featured our Mayor, Eric Garcetti, State Senator Steven Bradford, Assemblymember Mike Gipson, our Board Chair Yvonne Burke and others. It was a morning filled with anticipation and hope for the beautiful homes we’ll create for families and households in need.
Brian D’Andrea, Senior Vice President of Century Housing, commented that “It feels like a small miracle that we arrived at this moment after 4.5 years of planning and predevelopment work. But ultimately, that small miracle is the byproduct of our many miracle workers at Century who contributed their passion, energy and talents to achieve and commemorate this milestone.”
“Through Proposition HHH, Angelenos funded opportunities for people to start anew. The Banning will provide more than just a place to stay, it will offer hope and stability,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “Thank you to our partners and to the voters who believed in Proposition HHH.”
Supplementing City support, the County of Los Angeles provided No Place Like Home funds for The Banning. Together, these voter-approved programs have helped accelerate the rate of permanent housing development throughout Los Angeles and will help thousands of low-income and unhoused seniors, families, and individuals find a quality home with appropriate services available on-site.
The Banning is an all-new permanent supportive housing (PSH) development coming to the Los Angeles Harbor region neighborhood of Wilmington to provide 64 affordable homes for small families and individuals experiencing homelessness.
