1-Bedroom in Village Green, Baldwin Hills's Historic Garden City

New, 95 comments

Built in 1941 by a team of architects led by the forward-thinking Reginald D. Johnson, the 64-acre condominium community in Baldwin Hills known as Village Green was modeled after the Radburn plan (from the New Jersey community), emphasizing communal space over private and maintaining a separation between pedestrian and automotive traffic. (see below for Johnson's own 16mm Kodachrome footage documenting the Village's early years.) Declared a National Historic Landmark in 2001, the development contains 629 units of one-, two-, or three-bedrooms, one of which has just been listed in a short sale. Asking price for the one-bedroom, one-bath upper unit is $160,000, while its monthly homeowner association fee is $415.
