The Adelante Eastside Redevelopment Project
, adopted on March 30, 1999, is located approximately two miles east of the downtown Central Business District. The approximately 2,200 acre industrial and commercial redevelopment project contains the areas south of Olympic Boulevard to the city limits of Vernon from the Los Angeles River to Indiana Street; North Main Street east to Valley Boulevard and Alhambra Avenue to the city limits of Alhambra; and all east - west commercial streets in Boyle Heights such as Cesar Chavez Avenue, First Street, Fourth Street and Whittier Boulevard from the Los Angeles River to Indiana Street.
The principal thrust of the project is the preservation of industrial and commercial uses within the community to promote a stable industrial base to provide jobs for the community, as well as enhancing the existing shopping areas to provide alternative commercial choices for residents.

A survey was completed in 2009 to assist in identifying potentially historic properties within the CRA/LA Adelante Eastside Redevelopment Project Area. Approximately 2,200 acres of land containing nearly 2,800 parcels were reviewed to help identify, evaluate and document existing historic cultural monuments as well as any potentially new historic properties. Simultaneous to the Adelante Eastside historic survey, the Los Angeles Department of City Planning Office of Historic Resources (OHR) conducted a similar survey for the balance of Boyle Heights outside of the project area as a part of OHR’s SurveyLA project. Both surveys were compared for consistency of eligible historic criteria and together document a picture of the history that remains in Boyle Heights and the surrounding community.
