Meta Housing has broken ground on Juniper Grove, a three-story, 101-unit affordable apartment community for low-income families and individuals in Palmdale, California. The new development will fill a deep need in the community for high-quality affordable housing, which continues to increase across Los Angeles and Southern California.

“Affordability throughout the Los Angeles metro continues to be a major concern for residents,” says Kasey Burke, President of Meta Housing. “In fact, the pandemic has exacerbated this need, resulting in increased demand for affordable housing throughout the region.”

Juniper Grove apartments will offer new, quality housing that is both affordably priced and environmentally friendly.

“Juniper Grove is demonstrative of our commitment to continue delivering affordable, sustainable communities for hardworking individuals and families,” explains Burke. “The community will be built to LEED standards and incorporate solar panels to reduce the building’s carbon footprint, as well as energy costs.”

Juniper Grove will offer 49 one-bedroom apartments, 27 two-bedroom apartments and 25 three-bedroom apartments that are fully furnished. The development will also include common-area amenities such as a community room, office area and an art studio, which will be occupied by a full-time art staff offering art lessons. The multifamily property will also offer plenty of open spaces for a playground and visitors, as outdoor space has become increasingly important in the wake of the pandemic.

Juniper Grove is located in close proximity to the Antelope Valley Freeway, a number of restaurants, and two schools including Palm Tree Elementary School and Yucca Elementary School.

The 123,410 square-foot property is expected to be completed in June 2022. The development is located at 150 East Avenue R in Palmdale, California.
