Meta Housing has broken ground on LAMP Lodge Apartments, an 82-unit affordable housing community in downtown Los Angeles, California. The new development will be constructed to provide permanent supportive housing for those experiencing homelessness and individuals with special needs.

Homelessness has been on the rise over the last decade as the cost-of-living has increased and wages have remained stagnant. This has driven a significant need for affordable housing, especially housing that incorporates supportive services for residents.

“We take a holistic approach to our properties and work closely with cities to create projects that fill a deep need in the community and provide significant value to residents,” says Kasey Burke, President of Meta Housing. “LAMP Lodge will serve as a key development in creating pathways out of homelessness for residents downtown.”

The new development will consist of seven stories and a mix of studios, one-bedrooms, and a single two-bedroom. All units will be fully equipped with refrigerators, dishwashers, and energy-efficient windows.

Property amenities will include a shared community room with cooking space, open courtyards, a community garden, and on-site laundry. Residents will enjoy proximity to mass transit, neighborhood parks, grocery stores, a medical clinic, and a variety of retail and restaurants.

The property is located at 656-660 Stanford Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90021.
