The community joined InterImCDA in the opening celebration of Hirabayashi Place on Nov. 2. The building, on 442 South Main Street, is InterIm’s newest affordable housing development with 96 studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom apartments. Director Pradeepta Upadhyay told the Northwest Asian Weekly that 15 of those units were set aside for homeless families. The ground level is home to a childcare center run by El Centro De La Raza.
The development was named after Gordon Hirabayashi, who resisted Executive Order 9066.
