Properties In Operation


Dunbar Village

The Dunbar Hotel, once a focal point for LA’s African-American community in the segregated ’30s and ’40s, famous for hosting world-famous jazz musicians in its nightclub, was renovated and now serves as a seniors and family mixed-use development with the two Somerville projects built on either side of the historic building. The rehabilitation of the site, which began in 2011, was sensitive to the historical features of the building. Ground floor commercial space has been provided to attract community-serving businesses that are dedicated to the revitalization of South Los Angeles.
