A year after breaking ground in Downtown Los Angeles, the concrete podium of a supportive housing development is now rising above ground at 7th and San Pedro Streets.
The SP7 project, which is being developed by Skid Row Housing Trust, replaces a small warehouse with a seven-story structure containing 81 studio apartments. The podium-type development will cater to households making at or below 50 and 60 percent of the area median income, exclusive of a market-rate manager's unit.
KFA Architecture is designing the roughly SP7, which is described as having a "sleek, contemporary look with several shared roof decks and courtyards." Other project components include a community room, a laundry facility, recreation spaces, and on-site supportive services.
Completion is currently on pace to occur in late 2020, based on an approximately two-year construction timeline.
Two blocks west at the intersection of 7th and Wall Streets, Skid Row Housing Trust is building two additional projects.
At the northwest corner of the intersection, the 649 Lofts will provide 47 units of supportive housing upon completion, while the neighboring Flor 401 Lofts at the northeast corner of the intersection will include 98 residential units.
A block north SP7 at 6th and San Pedro Streets, Weingart Center has announced plans for mixed-use supportive housing developments at two corners of the intersection.
