A new supportive housing project is under construction at 555 South Crocker Street in Downtown Los Angeles. The project proposal includes the development of LA’s largest supportive housing development; a 19 story residential tower. The project will replace a surface parking lot on the site.
Weingart Center, in partnership with Chelsea Investment Corporation is the project developer. AXIS/GFA is the project’s architect. Other members of the project team include Emmerson Construction, Swinerton Builders, and Project Management Advisors.
The project will bring 278 residences as a mix of studios and one-bedroom apartments. All of the apartments will serve formerly homeless persons. The tower will feature three manager’s units. Plans also call for on-site supportive services, a ground-floor cafeteria, administrative offices, and subterranean parking for 15 vehicles.
AXIS/GFA is basing its work off of an entitlement design by Joseph Wong Design Associates. The project is valued at $164 million. Renderings reveal a modern glass-and-steel tower that will rise to a heigh of 200 feet once completed.
Completion of the Weingart Center tower is expected in December 2023.
