The SFAC Tenants Association
The SFAC Tenants Association is fighting to save the historic Santa Fe Art Colony - a vital live/work artists’ community in downtown Los Angeles. Longtime rent restrictions are about to expire, and new owner, Florida developer Fifteen Group, has announced plants to double the rents on November 1, 2019, effectively evicting the artists. The Tenants Association has made a purchase offer - a right provided by California’s Affordable Housing Preservation Law - to keep rents affordable and preserve this important cultural asset for current and future artists. Unfortunately, Fifteen Group has not engaged in a negotiation regarding the purchase offer.
