Meta Housing Corp., in partnership with The People Concern, has opened LAMP Lodge, an affordable housing community in downtown Los Angeles’ Skid Row neighborhood. Located at 656-660 Stanford Ave., the 82-unit property will provide affordable and accessible housing to individuals and families who have faced the challenge of homelessness. Meta Housing assembled the capital and managed ground-up construction of the property.
The project included the demolition of an existing 50-unit building and the development of the LAMP Lodge, which features a central courtyard, community room, garden boxes, modern security system, laundry facilities and accessible units and features. The People Concern will provide ongoing supportive services to tenants at the property.
The redevelopment team included Los Angeles County’s Housing Authority, Department of Mental Health and Department of Health Services; the California Department of Housing and Community Development; and the City of Los Angeles’ Housing Department and Housing Authority. Funding was provided by Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco, J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, Boston Financial Investment Management and the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee.
KFA Architecture served as architect for the project.
