Building Description

The Ford was built in 1925 as a six-story residence hotel with 295 units. As the neighborhood deteriorated in the mid-20th century, the Ford grew into one of the most dangerous housing complexes in the city.

A skid row hotel notorious for being one of the worst drug-trafficking locales in Los Angeles has been transformed through a $28-million makeover into housing for low-income residents.

SRO Housing Corp. bought the Ford Hotel in 2008 and renovated it. It now contains 150 studio units with kitchenettes and full bathrooms — an upgrade from the communal restrooms of the past. Residents have access to computers, a television lounge and a private tiled courtyard.
