A new housing development with a total of 187 units of supportive housing for low-income and homeless residents broke ground yesterday in East Hollywood.
Called PATH Metro Villas, the project is located at 340 North Madison Avenue, just a few blocks from the Vermont/Beverly Red Line station.
Set to be completed in two phases, the first part of construction will include 65 apartments along with services for residents, including on-site case management, security, a community room, and a kitchen designed for cooking instruction. An existing temporary housing facility will also be renovated and included in the final development.
The second stage of construction will bring an additional 122 units of to the community, which will be built around an open central courtyard.
The project is being developed by California-based organizations People Assisting The Homeless and Affirmed Housing Group, with support from several agencies on the city, county, and state level.
It’s not the only transit-friendly affordable development rising in the neighborhood. A couple stops north on the Red Line, Meta Housing Corporation recently completed work on a five-story development that will open fully leased.
The first phase of the PATH Metro Villas project is expected to be complete by summer of 2018, with the second phase wrapping up a year later.
