The City Council gives the Los Angeles Housing Partnership the go-ahead Monday for the 33-unit affordable housing development
Culver City may soon be home to a 33-unit mixed-use development dubbed Tilden Terrace, despite the initial controversy that swirled around the project.
The Culver City Council voted unanimously Monday to transfer the rights to a vacant lot across the street from Tellefson Park to the Los Angeles Housing Partnership, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building affordable housing.
However, the deal remains contingent upon whether LAHP can come up with its share of the estimated $24 million project; the Culver City Redevelopment Agency has already contributed $15.2 million as part of a long-term plan to increase affordable housing in the city.
If LAHP fails to secure the remainder within a year, the city will rescind the organization’s rights to the vacant lot.
Though neighbors at first opposed the project amid concerns about parking and dangerous traffic conditions, no one spoke out against the project during Monday’s public comment period
