In 1995, Artspace completed our second project, turning the California Tire and Rubber Company Building warehouse into 53 residential units, including 52 units of Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), plus 10,000 square feet of commercial space. This warehouse was originally constructed in 1915 as a cold storage warehouse and now provides affordable housing as well as space for community gardens, a neighborhood market and other small businesses. Rubber Company won the 1997 Award of Excellence from the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials.
