Building on more than four decades of experience, Thomas Safran & Associates has developed over 6,000 units of luxury, affordable, and mixed-use rental housing in Southern California.

With a keen focus on excellent design and extensive landscaping, our developments aim to enrich the lives of the people who reside in our buildings and enhance the greater community. Thomas Safran & Associates prides itself on several LEED certified projects and promotes sustainable building strategies. Land acquisition for property development requires careful selection. Past project locations include Hollywood, downtown Los Angeles, Carson, Baldwin Park, Calabasas, Riverside, Sun Valley and Catalina Island.

Our rental communities traditionally house 75 to 250 units and offer extensive amenities to our residents. Such features include basketball courts, playgrounds, spacious community rooms, libraries, exercise facilities, computer labs, pools and spas, community gardens, and other high-quality amenities.

Thomas Safran & Associates has received such distinguished awards as the Golden Nugget Award for best mixed-use and affordable housing; Lt. Governor Commendation for outstanding service in the public interest; Southern California Association of Non-Profit Housing Award, recognizing our Project of the Year; Urban Environmental Design Award for housing project design; Los Angeles Conservancy Preservation Award; and commendations from the California State Assembly and the State of California Senate, among others.
