Extensive Acq/Rehab of Low-Income Apartments in LA
Partnership renovates affordable housing in La Puente, CA
La Puente Park – located in La Puente, CA – is a garden-style affordable apartment housing community for low-income families. In 2002, Jamboree acquired and renovated La Puente Park in partnership with Preservation Partners Development, a company committed to permanently preserving “at-risk” affordable housing communities which were originally developed under U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) financing and direct rental subsidy programs.
Recently renovated and redesigned to give the community a modern look, La Puente Park has new landscaping, lighting, concrete walks and pathways for accessibility. Amenities such as three community rooms, barbecue areas and outdoor exercise equipment as well as laundry facilities and covered parking make life simpler and more convenient for residents. Each renovated apartment home has new kitchen and bathroom cabinets and countertops, new windows and flooring, new water heaters and furnaces, and ENERGY STAR appliances.
La Puente Park is ideal for families – a gated entry provides security, a playground offers a place for children to play and Jamboree’s Community Impact Group offers after-school programs such as tutoring to help kids excel in school. Proximity to six local schools, dining and shopping reduces commuters’ drive time. Nearby bus lines and a car share make this a walkable community in Los Angeles County.
Residents were temporarily relocated during the renovation. La Puente Park is an example of Jamboree’s commitment to its affordable housing communities. The renovation elevated the quality of the property, while Jamboree’s close partnerships with investors and the City ensure affordability for years to come.
