Construction is complete for a $24-million senior affordable housing development near the Crenshaw/LAX Line, announced R.D. Olson Construction last week.

The Curve at West Angeles, located at the intersection of 54th Street and Crenshaw Boulevard, consists of a five-story building featuring 70 income-restricted apartments and 2,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.  The housing comes in a mix of studio and one-bedroom floor plans, ranging from 400 to 630 square feet, each featuring a balcony and a patio.  Common amenities within the building include a community room, a laundry facility, a second-floor courtyard, and a fourth-floor sky deck.

KFA Architecture designed the podium-type building, which has a curving exterior inspired by the Streamline Moderne buildings that line much of Crenshaw Boulevard.

The project, a joint venture between Related California and West Angeles Community Development Corporation, is reserved for persons aged 62 and older.

In addition to its proximity to the Crenshaw/LAX Line, which has a station located two blocks south at Slauson Avenue, Curve also sits a few blocks from Destination Crenshaw, a linear art and cultural museum dedicated to South Los Angeles' African-American community.

Other affordable housing developments planned in the Hyde Park neighborhood include a 98-unit modular development at 6501 Crenshaw Boulevard and a 43-unit complex at 6527 Crenshaw Boulevard.
