Designed by Leong Leong, in association with Killefer Flammang Architects, the new 183,700 square-foot campus for the Los Angeles LGBT Center spans more than a city block and includes affordable housing for seniors and young adults, 100 beds for homeless youth, a senior center, retail space, a center for homeless youth, an administrative headquarters, and a cultural event space. The new site, located off McCadden Place and Santa Monica Boulevard, will include a public plaza and a series of courtyards that will unify the diverse programs and the neighboring facility, known as The Village at Ed Gould Plaza. The project proposes a new typology for a community-based development that unifies diverse social and residential programs, while creating a porous, pedestrian-oriented urban campus. The result is a new way of living as a multi-generational LGBT community that integrates social, cultural and institutional programs into a single campus in the heart of Hollywood. The building is expected to be completed in 2019.
