Linda Vista Reborn as Senior Apartments

(Office of Councilman Jose Huizar)

It wasn’t along ago that the Linda Vista community hospital was the center of paranormal tours that at times had Angelenos wanting to rush away from the abandoned building.

Things have changed at the site, and a celebration was held June 13 to mark the opening of the newly renovated Linda Vista Senior Apartments, a friendly affordable housing development where seniors can live independently while enjoying amenities that include a community room with a kitchen, a community center, courtyard with BBQ, and a wealth of planned activities and programs with the goal of improving health and prolonging independence.

Rehabilitation of the facilities, located at 630 S. St Louis Street in Boyle Heights, generated over 420 jobs during the construction which was done in two phases: phase one revitalized the former nurses’ dormitory into 23 apartment units; phase two created 120 affordable rental units.
