Project Area Overview

The Chinatown Redevelopment Project, located north of the Downtown Civic Center, covers 303 acres and is generally bounded by the Pasadena Freeway on the north, North Broadway and North Main Street on the east, Cesar E. Chavez Avenue and the Santa Ana Freeway on the south and Beaudry Avenue on the west. The Redevelopment Plan was adopted by the Los Angeles City Council on January 23, 1980 to eliminate blight, stimulate the development of affordable housing and maintain the area's prominence as the focal point of commerce and culture for the Chinese population of Southern California, and amended on September 19, 2001. Other important redevelopment goals are to encourage historic preservation, expand recreational and institutional uses, enhance the area's image and promote economic development.
