DEC19developmentwebYbarra Village, a joint effort by the Cesar Chavez Foundation and New Directions for Veterans (NDVets) is a new affordable housing community development in the West Adams district of Los Angeles, located at 3015 West near S. La Brea and Jefferson. This Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified residential community will feature 64 units as well as on-site social service programs for veterans provided by NDVets. Thirty-six units will be reserved for homeless veterans, some with special needs, and 27 will be designated for seniors, with a preference for senior veterans. By seeking the LEED Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, the Cesar Chavez Foundation earned a grant toward the project.

“The LEED Gold Certification reinforces our commitment to inspiring and transforming communities in a way that promotes sustainability,” said Alfredo Izmajtovich, Executive Vice President of Housing and Economic Development for the Cesar Chavez Foundation. “We are proud to work with New Directions for Veterans in building sustainable and affordable living spaces for veterans in need of housing. We are setting the bar for what can be achieved both individually and community wide.”

Ybarra Village will provide a number of sustainable building methods in order to promote sustainability as well as result in lower utility bills for residents. The property’s location is centrally located in the West Adams district of Los Angeles. This amenity-rich neighborhood is within walking distance of grocery stores, shops, restaurants, schools and public transportation including Metro Buses and the Expo Line.
