In unincorporated West Carson, construction is now in progress for a large affordable housing complex just east of the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center complex, general contractor Milender White has announced.

The project from Meta Housing Corp., now taking shape at 800 W. Carson Street, is rising on a property located just west of the I-110 Freeway. Plans call for the construction of a new seven-story complex featuring 230 one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom dwellings above a two-level subterranean parking garage.

Y&M Architects is designing the project, currently referred to as West Carson. According to the Milender White website, the building will present a red, white, and grey facade accented by black-framed recessed balconies when viewed from the west, and a white, black, and grey facade to the east, highlighted by a four-story mural.

Proposed on-site open spaces include a community center and multiple courtyards.

The apartments, which are to be reserved for households earning between 30 and 70 percent of the area median income level, are on track for completion in 2026, according to a news release by Monarch Private Capital, which provided Low Income Housing financing for the project.

In addition to its location in proximity to the Harbor-UCLA hospital, which is in the midst of a $1.7-billion makeover that includes a new clinic building and bioscience campus, the project joins a handful of other large housing developments now in the works nearby. That includes the West Carson Villas, a new affordable housing from PATH Ventures now rising less than one mile south of the hospital, as well as a proposed 525-unit development from GPI at 22107 S. Vermont Avenue.

West Los Angeles-based Meta Housing is also developing new projects in Westlake and Long Beach, among other locations.
