During her years as a real estate broker and historic preservation advocate in downtown Los Angeles, Sandra Bleifer created
and collected a trove of materials documenting the revitalization of downtown in the 1990s and 2000s--decades witnessing an
enormous amount of development and gentrification in the city's historic core and neighboring districts. The collection comprises
materials on a variety of revitalization projects, plans, and studies undertaken by different organizations and individuals,
including a study of the jewelry industry undertaken by USC graduate students in 2005, a plan for the Broadway theatre district,
and rehabilitation projects for the Red Car trolley and St. Vibiana's cathedral. Also included are minutes of the Lincoln
Heights Historic Preservation Board, various reports, brochures on residential loft development in historic buildings, and
Bleifer's own transactional files that detail historic information about the buildings she had listed as a broker.
