Built in 1983, Hamlin Estate is a 30-unit community comprising one- and two-bedroom apartments and two- and three-bedroom townhomes. Located in North Hollywood, it offers residents easy access not only to shopping of all types, but also the nearby arts district and, of course, Universal Studios.
Soon after acquiring Hamlin Estate, a condition of which was the long-term extension of its Section 8 status, Fairstead assumed management of the property. That onsite oversight provides the platform necessary to fulfill the company’s stated duty to positively impact both individual residents and the community when and where possible. These impacts include a focus on establishing and maintaining a higher-than-expected standard of general property upkeep and responsiveness to resident requests.
Beyond that, Fairstead’s in-house social services team aims to establish regular communal events and life-assistance programming at this property, based on its particular needs. These likely involve resolving issues in areas that are tied to personal growth and success, not least education, employment assistance, health and wellness, food insecurity, and access to relevant local, state, national government assistance programs.
