Work Commences on Los Angeles LGBT Centerís new Anita May Rosenstein Campus


Work has just started at the Los Angeles LGBT Centerís new Anita May Rosenstein Campus, located at 1116 N. McCadden Place, off Santa Monica Blvd in Los Angeles.

Slated for opening in early 2019, the revolutionary new campus will serve as the new administrative headquarters for the Center, and include up to 100 units of affordable housing for seniors, 100 beds for homeless youth, new senior and youth centers, up to 35 units of permanent supportive housing for young people, and ground floor retail space.

Architecture firm KFA, in collaboration with the New York design firm Leong Leong, is the Executive Architect for the new campus project, which will unite the Centerís Village at Ed Gould Plaza with the new campus, directly across the street. Currently, The Village is the Centerís arts, cultural and educational facility with two theatres, two gallery spaces, community meeting space, offices for AIDS/LifeCycle, and administrative offices.

The design reinforces the mosaic of services and programs that will be offered at the campus. The program components are knit together through a series of interior and exterior courtyards and plazas, taking full advantage of the outdoor environment of Southern California. The bold glass forms unfold at the corner, creating an open and confident architecture that will be a symbol of pride for not only the LGBT community but for the greater community of Los Angeles.

The Center has been part of the Los Angeles community since 1969, caring for, championing, and celebrating individuals and families in Southern California and beyond. Today the Center serves more people in the LGBT community than any other organization in the world, offering programs, services and global advocacy in health, social services and housing, culture and education, leadership and advocacy.

LGBT-identifying young adults comprise a disproportionate percentage of homeless youth. As Center CEO Lorri L. Jean told KPCC, ďthe new complex aims to help the two most vulnerable parts of our community, young people and seniors, who might face discrimination in other care facilities. Demand has skyrocketed in recent years and the need for affordable housing is particularly dire. The Center and our new campus are part of the solution to the growing problem of homelessness in our city.Ē

The new campus will also free up much-needed space at the current McDonald/Wright building, which will be entirely dedicated to medical and mental health care, addiction recovery services, HIV/STD testing and treatment, and more.
