RSG was engaged by the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA, formerly known as the Community Development Commission of the County of Los Angeles) on multiple projects. Tasks include:
- RSG evaluated development proposals for the acquisition and development on behalf of the City and County of Los Angeles for the mixed-use, mixed-income redevelopment of the West Los Angeles Courthouse and Civic Center.
- Willowbrook – RSG worked with Van Meter Williams Pollack on a real estate study to evaluate potential public-private partnership options between the Compton Unified School District and the County for redevelopment of a closed school campus near MLK Medical Center and Charles Drew University.
- West Altadena – RSG recently completed a reuse study for the Business Technology Center, which involved a real estate market and feasibility study for the project and alternative redevelopment options for County consideration.
- Assistance with RFSQ – RSG completed a Request for Statement of Qualifications for the LACDA to seek a master developer for County-owned properties along Lincoln Boulevard. Next steps in this effort include engaging stakeholders to gain input on community goals that may be shared with short-listed developers who would be invited to participate in an RFP to be released later this year.
The services provided to the County of Los Angeles have given RSG experience in preparing market studies for multiple real estate projects, including mixed-use projects with an affordable housing component. We evaluated market conditions to help the County determine various types of development that would best suit the needs of the community.
