El Segundo Boulevard Apartments is marking the five-year anniversary of its completion. The 74-unit affordable housing apartment community in Los Angeles, California, which was developed in 2018 by Meta Housing in partnership with several other organizations and institutions, was designed to accommodate veterans and their families.

“Providing well-designed and safe affordable housing for those in need is Meta Housing’s mission,” says Kasey Burke, President of Meta Housing. “Veterans and their families have sacrificed so much to serve us all and yet many find themselves vulnerable to homelessness. Delivering homes like El Segundo Boulevard Apartments for this segment of the community is an honor and a privilege.”

El Segundo Boulevard Apartments was constructed using the latest in sustainable “green building” principles. The community incorporates storm water filtration planters to clean, treat, and recycle all water used on site.

The development also features large spaces encouraging social interaction and engagement such as clubhouses, classrooms, and technology centers for educational purposes. Additional common-area amenities include bicycle storage rooms and a large courtyard.

Meta Housing developed El Segundo Boulevard Apartments in partnership with Chase, Boston Financial Investment Management, The California Community Reinvestment Corporation (CCRC), Housing and Community Development HCD), Department of Mental Health/California Housing Finance Agency (DMH and CalHFA), Los Angeles Housing + Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA), and Department of Health Services (DHS).

“We are grateful for our partners who allow us to complete projects like these in markets like Los Angeles where market-rate rents are high and many veterans are struggling to provide homes for themselves and their loved ones,” says Burke.

In addition to El Segundo Boulevard Apartments, Meta Housing currently has four additional affordable housing projects in its California portfolio that are designed to serve veterans and their families, including Loma Linda Veterans Village in Loma Linda, Metro@Western in Los Angeles, Santa Ana Arts Collective in Santa Ana, and Main Street Plaza Apartments in Roseville.
