AHF Buys Another Hotel for Homeless Housing

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation bought the 204-room Baltimore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. It’s the latest in its series of hotel purchases that AHF plans to convert into housing for the homeless.

The 76 existing tenants will remain after the $20 million deal is complete, AHF officials said. The AHF plans to paint the walls, update the floors and improve the plumbing.

The Baltimore is the fourth hotel AHF has purchased since October 2017 to repurpose as homeless housing. Others are the 150-room King Edward Hotel, across the street from the Baltimore, the 202-room Madison Hotel and the 27-room former Sunset 8 Motel in Hollywood, rebranded as Sunrise on Sunset.

The AHF is also suing the city over its plans to demolish Parker Center, the city’s former police headquarters, which the organization wants to convert into supportive housing, according to Curbed LA.
