Sneak Peek at the Center’s New Campus!
Take a look at renderings of the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s beautiful new Anita May Rosenstein Campus, scheduled to open in early 2019 directly across the street from The Village at Ed Gould Plaza in Hollywood. Though we're continuing to work with community members, city staff and our own architects to finalize a precise design, these drawings offer an exciting sneak peek at what the facility will look like.
The revolutionary new campus will include up to 100 units of affordable housing for seniors, 100 beds for homeless youth (double the number we currently have), new senior and youth centers, up to 35 units of permanent supportive housing for young people, a commercial kitchen to feed homeless youth and seniors, ground floor retail space, and 350 subterranean parking spaces for residents and visitors to The Village.
The Anita May Rosenstein Campus will also be the Center’s new administrative headquarters, freeing space for the McDonald/Wright building to become entirely a health and medical center, thereby enabling us to meet the growing demand for health-related services, including medical care, mental health, addiction recovery, HIV/STD testing and treatment, and much more.
The Center is engaged in a campaign to raise $40 million or more for the new facility. Phase I of the campaign—securing $25 million in pledges---has already been completed, including a lead gift of $7 million from the Anita May Rosenstein Foundation, Wilbur D. May Foundation, and the Anita and Arnold Rosenstein Family Foundation. Phase II—$15 million in pledges—is well underway with nearly $3M secured. The current focus of the campaign committee is sharing the vision of this project with people who have the potential to contribute $100K or more. They’ll soon expand their reach to everyone who would like to help make this extraordinary vision a reality.
