Construction on the four-story affordable housing project calledMetro @ Western is well underway. Located at 3661-3664 Western Avenue, just blocks from the Exposition/Western Expo Line stop, the complex will consist of 33 affordable housing units. Apartments have been designed with the special needs community in mind and 16 of these units will be availale to house homeless veterans. Units will run from $488 through $1,354 per month.
The develper, Meta Housing Corporation, describes the project:
Units will be affordable for households earning between 30-50 percent of the area medium income. Furthermore, the project will provide supportive services and Project-Based Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (PBVASH) vouchers for 16 units that will target veterans experiencing varying levels of homelessness. The project has the full support of the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System.
NANDC supported construction of the project in 2015, and issued a letter laying out several conditions. Construction is slated to be complete in 2019.
