AHF, the largest global AIDS organization, is expanding its Healthy Housing Foundation program in Los Angeles with the purchase of the Insurance Exchange Building, which will be the group's first office-to-residential conversion project.

The historic building on W. 9th Street in DTLA will be the 14th building AHF has purchased and renovated into housing for homeless and extremely low-income individuals since it began developing residential housing in 2017, a total of $183M in acquisitions.
