Los Angeles City council approved $50million for an affordable housing project proposed at 4600 and 4601 Washington Boulevard in Mid-City, Lincoln Heights. The project proposal includes the development of two projects with more than 150 residences.
Meta Housing Corp is the project developer. Y&M Architects is responsible for the design concepts and construction.
Named Washington Arts Collective, the project will bring two four-story buildings featuring 20 apartments for previously homeless people and 35 individuals for low-income families, including artists. The residences will be offered as a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom apartments. Space for a gallery, rehearsals, courtyards, meeting rooms, and music rooms will be created on the ground floor. A parking facility with a capacity of 100 vehicles will be designed on the site.

Los Angeles City Council voted to approve up to $24.8 million in funding for the project. Funding for Washington Arts Collective includes tax credit equity, bonds, Measure HHH funds, and No Place Like funds, contributing to a total estimated price tag of $38.5 million.
An estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet.
