Located at the southwest corner of Wilmington Avenue and 118th Street, the project replaces a parking lot adjacent to the MLK Medical Center campus with 100 apartments. The mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom dwellings will be reserved for formerly homeless individuals and families, as well as families earning 60 percent or less than the area median income.
D33 Design & Planning, which frequently works with LINC Housing, is designing the contemporary podium-type building. Plans call for a variety of amenities, including an exercise room, a garden, and a computer lab.
The $52-million development was expected to open in late 2020 at the time of its groundbreaking ceremony.
A staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee indicates that apartments will offer rents as low as $545 per month for a one-bedroom unit and as high as $1,512 for a three-bedroom apartment.
The project site is located directly across 118th Street from The Gateway, a similar affordable housing complex built by Thomas Safran & Associates, and just west of Metro's Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station.
