The wood and concrete frame of a small transitional housing development continues to take shape at 4801 W. Adams Boulevard.

The project, called Casa Amador, is being developed by the non-profit organization Reach for the Top.  The three-story edifice will feature six apartments - reserved for low- and moderate-income homeless women and children - above ground-floor office space and parking.

Architect Michele McDonough is designing Casa Amador, according to city records.

Reach for the Top, which provides housing for both homeless men and women, has worked on the Casa Amador development for more than eight years.

Less than a half-mile east near the intersection of Adams and Crenshaw Boulevard, non-profit development Abode Communities is planning two larger senior affordable housing projects.
