Across the street from the Mariachi Plaza subway station in Boyle Heights, vertical construction is now complete for La Guadalupe, a new affordable housing complex from Azure and Many Mansions.

Located at 110 S. Boyle Avenue, the new five-story building will feature a total of 44 studio, one-, and two-bedroom dwellings - reserved for very low- and extremely low-income households - with approximately 7,100 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and a 41-car garage. In addition to housing, plans call for facilities for on-site case management, financial education courses, food assistance, transportation assistance, and life skills training.

Y&M Architects is designing the podium-type building, which is to be clad in a combination of masonry veneer and fiber cement boards. Plans show amenities such as outdoor decks at the roof and podium levels, as well as a community room.

At the time the project began construction in late 2021, it was announced that its target population is homeless and chronically homeless families and individuals, who will be selected for the apartments using Los Angeles County’s Coordinated Entry System.

Financing for the project includes a variety of state and local sources, such as Measure HHH and low-income housing tax credits.

A similar affordable housing development with street-level retail was completed across the street from La Guadalupe in 2017, and another project is slated for a Metro-owned site adjacent to the Mariachi Plaza subway station entrance.
