TESTIMONIALS

 

“Los Angeles faces a housing crisis, with serious impacts on affordability in Mid City West and across the city. We need developments like 333 La Cienega, which add new housing for different income levels without displacing current residents. Caruso worked closely with the community to address concerns, make the area surrounding the project more pedestrian friendly, and provide public space amenities. I strongly support full approval of this outstanding project.”

“333 La Cienega is the type of transit-oriented, community-benefiting development that Los Angeles needs. Important to our climate organization, the 333 La Cienega development is climate-friendly. By creating mixed-use, mixed-income space, the project sites destinations in close proximity to where people live, reducing their need to get in a car, thereby increasing quality of life. The public green space demonstrates that community input that was taken into consideration in designing a project. The project will make the area more bike- and pedestrian-friendly, improve nearby transit amenities, and will mitigate their greenhouse gas emissions. Altogether, 333 La Cienega moves Los Angeles in a climate-resilient direction.”

“To solve our affordable housing crisis, Los Angeles needs innovative projects that add to our housing supply and include units for low income residents.  Rick Caruso’s 333 La Cienega project will do just that and is exactly the type of commitment that we need in our region.”

“As Executive Director with the St Francis Center I am pleased to offer my support for the La Cienega project. Caruso has made an impact in our community by their involvement with our Homeless Well Being Program, which helped support our efforts last year to serve over 100,000 homeless guests and 1,200 families. Too often I see developers displacing families, but this is quite the opposite; The La Cienega project would offer 10% on site affordable housing and set a precedent for what responsible and equitable development looks like in our diverse communities. I offer my support to the La Cienega project and applaud the efforts of the Caruso team for not just investing in a building, but investing in a community.”
