Construction is underway for a new supportive housing complex just north of Temple Street in Historic Filipinotown.

Loma Verde, a joint venture between Holos Communities and Restore Neighborhoods L.A., will rise from a 4500-square-foot lot at 405 N. Westlake Avenue. Plans call for a four-story building with 18 apartments and no on-site parking.

“Loma Verde is a testament to solving the housing and homelessness crisis by maximizing what can be achieved in a very small lot. 18 units situated on a 4500 square foot lot, approximately half of a typical single family home lot in much of LA,” said Holos Communities executive director and chief executive officer Cristian Ahumada. “This is the way we solve it – through sophistication and efficiency.”

The project, one of two which Holos is developing with Restore Neighborhoods L.A., was delayed by bot the global pandemic and the inflation that followed. It is among several projects awarded Measure HHH challenge funds.

Lehrer Architects is designing the Loma Verde, which is depicted in an elevation as a contemporary low-rise structure wrapped in greenery.

Other members of the project team include service provider HOPICS, general contractor Alpha Construction, and funding partners Genesis - LA, Red Stone Equity Partners, and the Los Angeles Housing Department.

The project site sits just north of Temple Street, where developer Trammell Crow Residential developed Alexan Bahay, a mixed-use building featuring 200 apartments and a ground-floor Target.

Holos Communities is also developing housing in Panorama City and Wilmington, among other neighborhoods.
