The wood frame of the Arroyo development is now complete in Santa Monica, and exterior finishes are currently being applied to the affordable housing complex.

Located at 1626 Lincoln Boulevard, the project will be owned and operated by the nonprofit Community Corp. of Santa Monica.  The five-story building will feature 64 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, which will be made affordable to households earning between 30 and 60 percent of the area median income.

Other project elements will include a picnic area, a basketball court, and supportive services such as after-school tutoring and wellness classes.

Koning Eizenberg Architecture designed the contemporary low-rise structure - located just south of the Expo Line - which is on pace to open in 2019.

Construction of the Arroyo was funded in part by the developers of the market rate 500 Broadway apartments, which recently broke ground.
