Residential Common Area:
49 Affordable Senior Apts.
This infill development utilizes a vacant site in South Los Angeles by contributing a fresh affordable senior living complex and new grocery market into the context of the neighborhood. Craftsman-inspired design will blend the project with homes to the east and supply accessibility to a MTA Rapid bus route on Broadway, the Sutton Recreation Center, a Mark Twain Library branch and multiple pharmacies and health clinics.
A unit mix of forty 1-bedroom apartments and nine 2-bedroom apartments, including a Manager’s Unit, are devised in three levels of Type V wood over Type I concrete subterranean parking. The underground parking allows for 49 cars, doubling the number of stalls required for the site and allowing for 108 on-grade stalls to service the commercial market on the balance of the lot.
100% affordable, the project is financed with allocation of 4% Low-income Housing Tax Credits, conventional debt and public funds from the Prop. 1C Infill Infrastructure Grant fund, federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program and Los Angeles CRA.
The project achieved LEED Gold certification.
