To call this huge, and a game-changer for the already red-hot neighborhoods of Northeast LA, would be understatement. As the LA Times’ Louis Sahagun reports: “Federal officials gave a major boost Wednesday to the city’s plans to turn the Los Angeles River into an urban oasis for recreation… The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it has decided to recommend approval of an ambitious, $1-billion proposal to restore habitat, widen the river, create wetlands and provide access points and bike trails along an 11-mile stretch north of downtown through Elysian Park.

Head over to LACurbed for a breakdown of what this all means — but in a word? It’s good. Really good. We’re particularly excited to hear that the “starting point” for this revitalization is likely to be Taylor Yard, a huge, long-abandoned rail depot that is just one mile from the beautiful new homes at NELA Union Modern Homes. These gorgeous, intelligently engineered residences are an exclusive offering from Tracy Do Real Estate. Prices for a new 2-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home start in just the high $400,000’s.

There has never been a better time to buy a home in Northeast LA. From Eagle Rock to Atwater Village, Mount Washington to Glassell Park, we’re experts in the area and would love to show you around.

Contact us anytime at Tracy Do Real Estate. NELA Union is open Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm, and weekdays by appointment. Learn more at www.nelaunion.com.
