EAST LA COMMUNITY CORPORATION (ELACC) & BRIDGE HOUSING CORPORATION
MIXED USE, TOD, AFFORDABLE FAMILY AND PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING
The El Lucero project will bring rich, mixed-use pedestrian vitality to the Mariachi Plaza Station. It will also provide a powerful iconic marker at the bend in First Street, both providing a gateway to the First Street corridor east of Boyle, and a dramatic enclosing backdrop along the full northern edge of Mariachi Plaza.
On the principal, westerly site, El Lucero will consist of 49 affordable family housing units over a podium fully lined by retail/commercial space (7,500 square feet), and residential amenities. El Lucero will provide the Mariachi Station with quality habitation, vital pedestrian life, an iconic backdrop to the Plaza, and a dramatic gateway to points east. It will be a project that both serves and expands Metro ridership by expanding the urban fabric in a way that is both vigorous and sensitive to the quality of city we are collaboratively creating.
