Charlotte Square at the East End is now open.
Mayor Lovely Warren and County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo helped cut the ribbon for Monday's celebration.
The project on Charlotte Street includes 72 new apartments and 14 town homes. The project will also get $441K in tax breaks from COMIDA.
The project is one part of a series of changes to the East End, including the Inner Loop fill-in, that the city hopes will revive the area.
During the ceremony on Monday, we spoke with a homeowner who moved from California for work.
"I wanted to live someplace where I could live work and play within five miles," says Edye Jordan, lives at Charlotte Square. "I work down the street. I'm home in five minutes. I've saved myself off the 405 in LA."
The Home Leasing Company built Charlotte Square and, next up, a housing complex on top of the former Inner Loop. Construction starts in the fall. Home leasing is calling it: Charlotte on the Loop.
