Opening of Witmer Heights Apartments

Originally uploaded by CD-13
I joined community members in celebrating the grand opening of the Witmer Heights Apartments, a 49-unit complex for low-income families in the Pico-Union neighborhood. In addition to the one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, the complex also features two community rooms, a rooftop terrace, laundry facilities, a computer center, and a tot lot.

The Witmer Heights Apartments are a wonderful addition to this community and are providing quality, affordable housing to Los Angeles families. I’m proud that the City of Los Angeles' Affordable Housing Trust Fund helped make this project possible.

Two schools and a soon-to-be-opened park are just a short distance from the new complex giving tenants the opportunity to walk to these destinations.

Tenants will also have access to free classes on job skills, computer literacy, personal finance, health, nutrition, and more.
