Earlier this year, LINC Housing broke ground on Springhaven, a mixed-use affordable housing development near Metro's Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station

The project, located at 1854 E. 118th Street, is replacing a parking lot attached to the MLK Medical Campus.  Plans call for a six-story edifice that will feature 100 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, of which half will be reserved for previously homeless individuals and families, and the remainder of which will be set aside for families earning 60 percent or less than the area median income.

"Springhaven is part of LINC Housing’s effort to integrate affordable housing with health resources and other services," said Rebecca Clark, president and CEO of LINC Housing. "We know from experience that providing secure housing with health-related and other supportive services helps build strong neighborhoods. Los Angeles County and the Willowbrook community have made housing a top priority, and LINC is proud to partner with them to bring this beautiful new building to the area."

Orange County-based architecture firm D33 Design is designing Springhaven, which is portrayed as a contemporary low-rise structure featuring common amenities including an exercise room, a container garden program, and a computer lab.

The $52-million development is to be completed in late 2020.

Springhaven is rising directly across the street from The Gateway, a $44-million senior affordable housing development which was recently completed by Thomas Safran & Associates.
