Three contestants are lining up to win the prize of redeveloping the former Lincoln Heights Jail at 421 N. Avenue 19, which abuts the Los Angeles River.

CIM Group, the nonprofit WORKS and Lincoln Property Group are the three finalists out of nine bidders. They pitched their proposals for the historic property at a community meeting last week.

The city began soliciting proposals for the five-story, 230,000-square-foot property last year, Urbanize reported.

CIM Group proposed a concept called “The Linc” that would feature office space, multifamily residential units and low-income housing. It would also include retail shops, restaurants and a community garden space.

Nonprofit WORKS is aiming to replace the structure with 113 units of moderate income and permanent supportive housing, as well as a daycare center, art center and public gardens. It’s project is dubbed “Las Alturas.”

The third finalist, Lincoln Property Group, calls for the “Walkway District” that would open the building to the neighborhood with community gardens, sports fields and other spaces. [Urbanize] — Subrina Hudson
