Meta Housing has completed the development of Arboleda Apartments, a 74-unit senior housing community for low-income adults aged 62 years and older in the city of La Puente, California.
According to Justice of Aging, older adults represent the fastest growing age group of the homeless population in California, with the primary causes of this increase being unsustainable rent burdens and an inadequate supply of affordable, accessible and stable housing.
“We are committed to meeting existing and projected housing needs for seniors in California,” says Kasey Burke, President at Meta Housing. “La Puente is a city with strong demand for affordable housing, and Arboleda Apartments will provide access to beautifully designed residential units for seniors who could not otherwise afford housing in this community.”
Inspired by Spanish-style architecture, the housing complex offers 59 one-bedroom and 14 two-bedroom units. In further efforts to help the senior residents of this development, 38 apartments are fully ADA-accessible units, and seven apartments are equipped with hearing and visual impaired life safety devices.
Residents can enjoy amenities including a large community room, fitness room, technology center, library and gated parking. Residents also have opportunities to congregate outdoors on a ground-floor courtyard and a second-story terrace.
The newly built apartments are situated in close proximity to community parks, schools, local restaurants and more.
Arboleda Apartments is located at 1040 North Unruh Avenue in La Puente, California
