Baldwin Hills mudslides block traffic on La Brea Avenue, raise fears over hilltop home

A mudslide in Baldwin Hills raised fears over the fate of a hilltop home, while another mudslide in the area spilled onto La Brea Avenue and blocked traffic.

BALDWIN HILLS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- An overnight mudslide in Baldwin Hills raised fears over the fate of a hilltop home, while another mudslide in the area spilled onto La Brea Avenue and blocked traffic.

"It's kind of scary," said Apryl Sims, whose aunt lives on El Mirador Drive. "I didn't sleep well last night at all, because this happens when it rains this hard and this long."

Sims and her son, who live nearby, rushed over to their family member's home Wednesday morning after hearing that mud had come toppling down from the hillside across the street.

"It's kind of gnarly for her," Sims said. "We came to see if she needed us to move her car, get her something, she said she's fine right now."

Sims and her son, Gyasi Jordan, have been concerned about all the rain saturating the ground.

"I feel for all the elderly residents in the neighborhood that have been here, been entrenched for a long time, that haven't seen something like this since the '70s," Jordan said. "Yeah, it's gotta be terrifying."

Mud came down onto nearby La Brea Avenue overnight, covering all the northbound lanes. The mud rushed down in front of two cars, leaving them stuck.

"This crazy weather that we have going on, it's scary," said resident Kendall Hannah. "But to see the mud sliding, to see the water, how it's building up on the ground as well as on the streets, it's really scary for a lot of people who are not familiar with it. You just kind of have to deal with it."

Crews worked throughout the morning to clear the mud and debris from the roadway. But with more rain expected in the coming week, everyone in the area is bracing for what's to come.

"I hope that the mountain kind of holds up, I hope the rain kind of subsides," Hannah said. "I know it's gotta be scary for the people that are living on the mountainsides. For all of us kind of watching it all happen, it's scary to see."

Rumors have been circulating, but it's now official: Costco is coming to Baldwin Village.

Developer Thrive Living has announced plans to redevelop a five-acre property at 5035 W. Coliseum Street, formerly home to View Park Community Hospital, with a mixed-use apartment complex featuring a Costco on the ground floor. Located just east of La Brea Avenue, the proposed project would include 800 apartments in a new building composed of prefabricated modular units.

“Mayor Bass has declared a housing emergency in Los Angeles, and we’re answering the call,” said Jordan Brill of Thrive Living in a news release. “Our company is focused on addressing the severe housing affordability crisis in Los Angeles, while also attracting retailers willing to make long-term commitments and deliver community-serving products and services that enrich the living experience for our residents and neighbors.”

AO

Although the project has yet to be filed with the Planning Department, a project description indicates that plans rely onto allow greater density and floor area than zoning rules would otherwise permit. Thrive Intends to set aside 184 of the new apartments as low-income affordable housing, making the project eligible for Transit Oriented Communities incentives that permit greater density and floor area than otherwise allowed by zoning rules. The remaining market-rate units are described as non-subsidized affordable and workforce housing, which will be made available to renters with Section 8 vouchers, including families and seniors in the surrounding community.

The ground-floor Costco is set to include produce, optical services, a pharmacy, and delivery services for nearby businesses. The new store is expected to create up to 400 jobs.

"This is truly a game changer for us and a huge investment in the community," said Brenda Ashby of the Crenshaw Manor Community Association." We are excited to have quality groceries close to home, in addition to all the other services Costco provides."

AO is designing proposed six-story building, which would sit atop a multi-level basement parking garage, is also slated to include indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, which are intended to cater to the surrounding community. Plans call for five courtyards, a landscaped walking path, a rooftop pool, basketcall courts, play structures, and a fitness area. Likewise, the property is expected to incorporate outdoor spaces for movie nights, community gardens, and room for classes.

Thrive Living is an affiliate of Magnum Real Estate Group, a New York-based firm which recently acquired the neighboring Baldwin Hills Shopping Center to the north at 5060 Obama Boulevard. The nearly 104,000-square-foot property is anchored by a Ralphs grocery store.

The project sits less than a half-mile south of Metro's Expo/La Brea Station, which is served by the E Line. Properties surrounding stops on the E Line have proven attractive to developers in the past decade, with large mixed-use projects starting to sprout near stops at Bundy Drive, Sepulveda Boulevard, La Cienega Boulevard, and Crenshaw Boulevard, as well as in Culver City.

BALDWIN HILLS, Calif. (KABC) -- Success is typical among the residents in the predominantly African-American neighborhoods of Baldwin Hills, Ladera Heights, Windsor Hills and View Park. Many of the homes are valued upwards of $2 million, and scores of Black celebrities, including Ray Charles and Tina Turner, have lived in the area, leading some to call it the "Black Beverly Hills."

But this label paints a distorted image of a community that's proud of its own history and identity.

"I'm pretty sure it wasn't somebody African American that labeled it," said Baldwin Hills resident Denise Burnett, a former school principal and rising director at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. "Everyone here has worked very hard. They didn't have a silver spoon in their mouth. It wasn't given to them or inherited it. They worked very hard to be here."

Denise and her husband, Dr. Ted Burnett, a dentist who grew up in neighboring South Los Angeles, raised their daughter in the area.

"We always knew that there were more affluent Black people that lived in the Baldwin Hills area. So as kids we always wanted to be there," said Dr. Burnett.

According to local real estate agent Roland Harris, African Americans settled in the area because historically, they were not allowed to purchase homes in other affluent areas.

"It's just a really great community," said Harris. "During the late 60s and early 70s, African Americans, a lot of times people would not sell to them in affluent neighborhoods, even if they could afford it. A lot of successful African Americans chose this neighborhood because it's a very beautiful neighborhood, and they were allowed access."

Costco wants to build a different kind of store in South L.A. — with bulk housing

A Costco store could make its way to the Baldwin Village neighborhood and add 800 apartment units and about 400 jobs to the South Los Angeles community, according to renderings released this week.

The apartment units would sit above the warehouse store at Coliseum Street and La Brea Avenue, real estate developer Thrive Living announced in a press release.

Artist renderings for the proposed mixed-use project show the familiar Costco Wholesale logo crowned with an apartment complex. The project would sit on a vacant 5-acre lot that was previously home to View Park Community Hospital in Baldwin Village. It would be the first Costco in South L.A.

There have been no applications filed with the city of Los Angeles for the project, but it was announced earlier this year and renderings for the development were released Tuesday. A spokesperson for Costco could not be immediately reached for comment.

The site would feature a “state-of-the-art store, featuring fresh produce [and] healthy food options for residents,” according to the developer. The store would also include an optical service counter for eyeglasses, a pharmacy and a delivery service. There’s no word if the site would feature the traditional Costco food court.

The project would include 800 apartments, with 184 units meant for low-income tenants, equaling 23% of the total units, the developers said. The mixed-use project would be 25% retail and 75% housing. That would make the project eligible for incentives through the city’s Transit Oriented Communities program, which allows greater density and floor area than is normally allowed under current zoning rules, according to the Los Angeles Planning Department’s guidelines.

The project is meant to support families, seniors and other residents from the community, according to Thrive Living, a privately owned national real estate firm. Apartments would be marketed for affordable housing for seniors and low-income households, the developer said.

Jordan Brill, a representative for Thrive Living, said the project helps address the state of emergency on homelessness declared by Mayor Karen Bass on her first day in office.

“Our company is focused on addressing the severe housing affordability crisis in Los Angeles, while also attracting retailers willing to make long-term commitments and deliver community-serving products and services that enrich the living experience for our residents and neighbors,” Brill said in a written statement.

The developer said it would partner with Costco to hire and train local residents for an estimated 400 jobs that would be created at the store.

Thrive Living is owned by New York-based real estate firm Magnum Real Estate Group. The firm purchased the adjacent Baldwin Hills Shopping Center last year for $37.3 million, as reported by the real estate website the Registry. That location includes a Ralphs supermarket on Obama Boulevard, right around the corner from the proposed Costco.

The area is a food desert, according to Joe Rouzan, president of the Vermont Slauson Economic Development Corp.

“The lack of quality groceries at prices that are affordable is something that needs to be addressed,” Rouzan said in an email.

He thinks a Costco would offer residents more options and would be a job generator. He’s also confident the developer’s vision has already signaled something that other big-box stores have not emphasized in the past — adding affordable housing.

John Cleveland, chef and co-owner at Post & Beam at the nearby Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza, describes the neighborhood as tight-knit, but one that has been changing over the last several years.

“I think for the most part, there are a little bit of nerves around all these changes that everybody knows are in the works,” Cleveland said.

As a business owner, he said he knows that he benefits from more traffic coming into the neighborhood, but he also understands that some South L.A. residents could be displaced as rents increase and more high-end developments are built.

“It can be real easy for a Costco to come in and really change the whole neighborhood,” Cleveland said.

Once struggling with academic performance, an elementary school in Baldwin Hills is now thriving after teachers took a step back and tailored the curriculum to the students.

BALDWIN HILLS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Once struggling with academic performance, an elementary school in Baldwin Hills is now thriving after teachers took a step back and tailored the curriculum to the students.

Since adopting the new curriculum in 2016, student performance at Baldwin Hills Elementary School has dramatically increased.

Stacey Joy, a teacher at the school, decided to switch things up in the classroom when she noticed a lack of enthusiasm from students.

"The kids were like so excited, like you could tell that it's like, get us away from those old funky books and let's do something new and fun," said Joy.

That meant a new curriculum that embraces and incorporates the African-American identify and experience into daily lesson plans.

In just two years, achievement in English increased by 27% among African-American students and 62% in math, according to the California Department of Education. African-American students at the school are now exceeding state averages in both subjects by roughly 100%.

Last month, the school received the 2020 California Distinguished School Award for closing the achievement gap.

"We're really excited about it. We have over 82% of students of African descent and traditionally when you're talking about black families and Latino families, the common trend has been their underachievement," said Dr. Letitia Johnson-Davis, the school's principal.

The curriculum is more rigorous for students and teachers and it's in constant revision as teams of educators assess what works and what doesn't. Parents also play a key role.

In fact, it was parents and educators together that initiated the shift, making Baldwin Hills elementary a pilot school still under the LAUSD umbrella - but with the autonomy to shape its own educational program.

Tünette Powell says her son used to struggle with writing but not anymore.

"The 4th grade teacher started using poetry and hip hop to get him to fall in love with writing and to find his voice. He starts getting fours in writing and I'm just like oh my god, and now he's so arrogant about his writing as if he's always been good at it," she said. "But it's like that's just an example of being able to bring in curriculum that is relevant and that is culturally relevant and means something to kids. That's been really important for us."

Alicia Montgomery, the executive director for the Center for Powerful Public School who studies the roughly 40 pilot schools in LAUSD, says Baldwin Hills is getting it right.

"The idea that the expertise is in the room and how we use that expertise to create better outcomes for students is critical and absolutely can be replicated," she said.
