HSDNC & Multihouse break ground on new pocket park

On Wednesday, May 23, 2022 the HSDNC, in conjunction with the Multihouse ENGAGE Accelerator program, officially broke ground on its first-ever pocket park in the Hollywood Studio District Improvement Zone on N. St. Andrews Place. Before the ceremony, dozens of volunteers spent hours cleaning up the block and beautifying the surrounding area.

“Today marks an important moment for our community. We choose not to uproot, but uplift our neighbors. We choose not to gentrify but instead amplify the voices of those who already call Hollywood home. All of our stakeholders deserve a community they can be proud of and today I’m so proud to call Hollywood my home.” said Michael Tessler, Chair of the HSDNC, CEO of Multihouse, and a resident of La Mirada Ave.
