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 have expired. The new owner, Florida-based Fifteen Group, more than doubled the rents and initiated eviction proceedings for 21 studios that paid the rental amount prescribed by the California State Rent Cap law that went into effect Jan. 1, 2020. These evictions are now being fought by the resident 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. SFACTA has filed a lawsuit (Santa Fe Art Colony Tenants Association, Inc. v. Art Colony Property LLC, Los Angeles Superior Court Case No. 19STCV43221) to enforce its rights to attempt to purchase the Property.”
