Sage Park opens its doors at the grand opening
LOS ANGELES — Steinberg joined forces with BRIDGE Housing Corporation and the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to design and develop 90 affordable rental apartments. The Grand Opening event wrapped with a touching story by Tanisha Stallworth, an LAUSD employee and mother of two who recently became a resident at Sage Park. Tanisha shared her touching story about having to let go of her home and live in a shelter for 7 months until she learned of the Sage Park project. The development agreement prioritizes LAUSD employees and at the close of the lease application period, despite the more than 7,200 applications received, Tanisha was able to provide a beautiful and safe home for her family.
The Sage Park Apartments is located on a 3.5-acre site at the north side of the Gardena High School campus. Rents for the one, two-, and three-bedroom apartments are affordable to families earning 30-60% of Area Median Income. BRIDGE Housing Corporation, a leading nonprofit developer and manager of affordable homes, specializes in transitoriented, mixed-use and mixed-income developments. Other amenities include fitness and community rooms, laundry facilities, a community garden, and landscaped courtyards. Additionally, the project site is home to:
The Juvenile Impact Program
Steinberg designed new facilities for the existing LAPD Harbor Division Juvenile Impact Program. This development was designed to educate youth in a non-traditional, structured learning environment that addresses life lessons such as life, leadership, and academic skills while improving self-esteem, pride, and confidence.
The Gardena High School Art Collection
Steinberg designed a shared facility to provide space to store and exhibit the Gardena High School Art Collection. Amassed between 1919 and 1956 by Gardena High School’s graduating classes, the Collection was gifted one California-focused painting per year resulting in an impressive collection of California Impressionist Art.
