The Jordan Downs Plaza is a public/private partnership and part of the Jordan Downs revitalization project in the South Los Angeles neighborhood of Watts. The revitalization project is a mixed-use, mixed-income redevelopment of a 1950s-era community that will maximize solar opportunities, energy efficiency, environmental sustainability and include substantial community spaces. The project is part of a five-phase masterplan and provides much-needed commercial space – including a grocery store, gym and retail shops, as well as more than 300 new permanent and construction jobs for area residents.
