The Rancho San Pedro public housing site is located in the Barton Hill neighborhood of San Pedro on the Palos Verdes Peninsula near the terminus of the Harbor Freeway (I-110). Immediately adjacent to the Port of Los Angeles and San Pedro’s burgeoning downtown, the neighborhood has been recently undergoing a significant revitalization which is expected to continue in the next several years.

The Rancho San Pedro Neighborhood includes 478 public housing units on 21.2 acres of land along the downtown San Pedro waterfront. The first phase was constructed in 1942 (284 units on 12.5 acres) for Defense Department industry workers and then converted to public housing in 1952, after World War II.
At that point, 194 units on 8.7 acres was added. The bedroom breakdown currently includes: 101 one-bedroom units, 258 two-bedroom units, 78 three-bedroom units, 30 four-bedroom units and 11 five- units. All units have one-bathroom. The current site layout does not maximize the full potential of the property and the unit floor plans are obsolete. A Physical Needs Assessment conducted in August 2017 found multiple site deficiencies, including $48 million in critical and non-critical needed improvements and identified the site as not having Long-Term Viability as defined by HUD.
