LOS ANGELES LGBT CENTER, ANITA MAY ROSENSTEIN CAMPUS
Location: 1118 N. McCadden Place, Los Angeles
Developer: Los Angeles LGBT Center
Contractor: Swinerton Builders
Architect: KFA Architecture
The new Los Angeles LGBT Center, Anita May Rosenstein Campus — located on McCadden Place and Santa Monica Boulevard — is a new typology for community-based urban development that includes diverse social and affordable housing programs. The porous, pedestrian-oriented urban campus features a public plaza and a series of courtyards that unify various social services, cultural and institutional programs, and the Center’s existing neighbor facility, the Village at Ed Gould Plaza. The result is a new, integrated platform for living as an intergenerational LGBTQ community. The Center currently serves more LGBTQ people than any other organization in the world, welcoming over 42,000 client visits each month. The new campus will enable a dramatic expansion of the Center’s intergenerational services, including 100 beds for homeless youth, a new Senior Community Center and Youth Academy, as well as expanded programming, administrative space, a retail space, cultural events space, and more.
