Harbor Village Community
A model for the redevelopment of obsolete public housing and revitalization of a depressed neighborhood, Harbor Village was built on a 35.4 acre site in Harbor City that was known as Normont Terrace.  The old housing project contained 400 units of wartime-era public housing that was in such bad shape it was cheaper to tear it down and start over than it was to fix it.

A very unique community, Harbor Village combines 400 Section 8 low-income units and 224 homes for sale.

The firm that was ultimately chosen for the project was The Related Companies. Headquartered in New York City, it is the fourth-largest owner of multi-family housing in the U.S. and one of the largest developers of government-subsidized housing.

The Harbor Village Project was different from the start. First of all, The Related Companies and the residents became co-general partners; residents would have input and decision-making in every phase of the project. Secondly, employment opportunities created by the development project were extended to residents, including access to apprentice training programs through the Los Angeles County Building Trades. And, if that were not enough, the development mixes low-income housing with affordable middle-income housing. For-sale, single-family detached homes (224 of them) were interspersed with the 400 Section 8 apartments. The development consists of 9 to 18 units per building, with 2, 3, and 4 bedroom units that are equipped with wall to wall carpeting, window treatments, refrigerator, stove, washer, dryer, and dishwasher. Regardless of income, the housing looks the same.
