Bethune Library

Sustainable Economic Development

The Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles sought proposals from a qualified Development Team to redevelop an opportunity site located at 3671 – 89 South Vermont Avenue, also known as the former Bethune Library site. CRA-LA’s objective was to partner with a developer that could redevelop the site into a catalytic, urban infill project sensitive to the community needs and surrounding neighborhood character. Tierra West was retained to assist the Agency with the evaluation of the development proposals and provide a recommendation based upon the project site’s goals and objectives, as well as a financial feasibility review.
