Hoover Union Triangle


The Hoover Union Triangle Project is underway with several community meetings having been completed in March and April 2015 to identify how the community would like to use the space. Community members considered the space using board game sized layouts and completed the Triangle Challenge to envision the space on a slightly smaller scale using props. From there, participants rated the importance of the generated scheme elements.

Our Name

We still proudly carry the early moniker in our name as the 'Empowerment Congress North Area Neighborhood Development Council'.  Call us NANDC for short!

Our Community

NANDC is located in West Adams, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, with most of its buildings erected between 1880 and 1925. It was once the wealthiest district in the city, with its Victorian mansions and sturdy Craftsman bungalows home to Downtown businessmen and professors and academicians at USC. In the 1990s, three areas of West Adams were designated as Historic Preservation Overlay Zones by the city of Los Angeles, in recognition of their outstanding architectural heritage.
