A ribbon cutting ceremony held on May 6 marked the debut of The Pointe on La Brea, a new affordable housing complex from EAH Housing.

Located on the former site of an auto body repair shop at 843-849 N. La Brea Avenue, the project consists of a five-story building which features 50 apartments above at-grade parking for five vehicles. Those apartments, all in studio floor plans, include 25 units reserved for residents facing chronic homelessness.

FSY Architects designed the contemporary podium-type building, which features a community room, case management offices, a community kitchen, a public courtyard, and a rooftop deck.

At the exterior, the building is highlighted by a large mural on its northern face featuring a depiction of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Other EAH Housing projects are in the works at locations in Santa Monica and South Los Angeles.
