Dr. Walter Jayasinghe (Dr. J), a fixture of the Westlake/MacArthur Park community, has a 40-plus year history of providing medical care to some of Los Angeles’ most neglected communities (Westlake Park, Echo Park, Boyle Heights, Highland Park and South Los Angeles).

In the 1970s, he established one of the community’s first 24-hour, walk-in general practice clinics. He continues his hands-on involvement in the community today through these medical clinics. Dr. J has delivered more than 13,000 babies. Demonstrating his strong belief in community engagement, Dr. J has made the Wilshire Medical Building’s ground floor ballroom available for the neighborhood.

The Lake on Wilshire represents the next step in Dr. J’s dedication and commitment to the Westlake/MacArthur Park community. It reflects his vision to transform the area, one of Los Angeles’ most heavily populated and under-served neighborhoods, into a community-focused, environmentally-friendly development with a lasting impact.

For this project, Dr. J has assembled an industry-leading team of professionals to develop a complex that will help transform the area. Westlake/MacArthur Park residents and community leaders should feel confident knowing of Dr. J’s intention to build a project of the highest caliber – one that will stand the test of time – because he remains committed to active participation in the Westlake/MacArthur Park now and in the future.
