A new senior housing project is almost ready for inauguration at 4200 Pico Boulevard in Mid-City, Los Angeles. The project proposal includes the construction of a new five-story housing complex featuring residential and retail spaces.
Wakeland Housing and Development Corporation is the project developer. Abode Communities is designing the project.
Named The Amani Apartments, the project call for the construction of a five-story edifice that will feature 54-unit apartments and approximately 2,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space at completion. At the time Wakeland applied for tax credit financing in 2020, rents for the apartments at the Amani were expected to start at $548 per month. The apartments are to be reserved for rent by very low-income senior households.
Renderings reveal a contemporary podium-type building, which will include a community room, a laundry facility, a roof deck, and a landscaped courtyard.
The apartments are scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2022. The project site is located at the southwest corner of the intersection of Pico Boulevard and Crenshaw Boulevard.
