Lincoln Heights is considered the oldest neighborhood in Los Angeles outside of downtown. And, we are delighted to say, it is going to get some desirable gentrification—the 1930s vintage Lincoln Heights jail (condemned in 2014 for lead- and asbestos-related issues) is going to be transformed.
“The winning proposal for its reboot includes adaptively reusing the 1930s-era jail and an adjacent property to create what they’re calling the Lincoln Heights Makers District, a cluster of commercial and manufacturing spaces, a public market, creative offices, live/work housing, affordable housing, recreation space and a communal rooftop area.”
The transformation of the old jail will wonderfully uplift the area.
Here is an artist’s rendering of the project:
