Downtown LA’s Skid Row neighborhood is poised to see plenty of new development in coming years, as the area’s affordable housing providers have proposed a growing list of major new projects.

The latest comes from Meta Housing Corporation. The developer plans to replace a 50-unit single room housing complex with a larger seven-story development, according to environmental documents published by the planning department last week.

Located at 660 South Stanford Avenue, now the site of LAMP Lodge, the proposed project would include 82 units of housing atop a single level of parking and a common area for residents. 81 of those units would be reserved for those earning under half of LA’s median income (the other would be a manager’s unit).

A few blocks away from this project, housing and service provider Weingart Center is planning a pair of tall towers with hundreds of affordable units between them. Also nearby, developer Skid Row Housing Trust has proposed a contemporary-looking 100-unit complex designed by Killeffer Flammang Architects, and another project with 150 units.
