"The HACSB purchased the vacant lot at 251 S. Hope Ave. in April 2014 with the intention of developing a project similar to the successful 98-unit Garden Court on De la Vina Street. The Gardens on Hope will consist of 88 studio units and a one-bedroom manager unit.
The housing will serve the same low-income, frail senior population and provide three meals a day, housekeeping, transportation to medical appointments and a host of social programs." - Courtesy of NoozHawk
