Emerald Terrace Apartments is located in central Los Angeles on a previously vacant lot that was a dumping ground for debris and common place for loitering. Completed in 2007, Emerald Terrace is an 85 unit development focused on providing family housing.

Emerald Terrace’s proximity to amenities makes it particularly well suited for families: there are several full-service grocery stores, within a quarter mile radius of the development; there are several medical centers and pharmacies within a half mile radius of the project, including the Good Samaritan Hospital, Chuateco Medical Clinic, and Glendale Pizarro Medical Clinic; and the project is within a quarter mile of several public schools and a half mile from the Echo Park Public Library. The neighboring Miguel Contreras Learning Center is home to LAUSD’s premier sports facility with amenities including 2 gymnasiums, an outdoor swimming pool, track, baseball diamond, softball diamond, practice field, football/soccer field, 8 outdoor basketball courts, and 4 tennis courts.

Emerald Terrace also provides enhanced social services for families and children. This project goes beyond providing basic shelter, helping to stabilize families, to empowering individuals to move toward independence and self-reliance.
