Located at 1010 E. Jefferson Boulevard in the Historic South-Central area, the approximately $21-million development includes the ground-up construction of a four-story building and the adaptive reuse of the historic funeral home, creating a total of 41 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. The units will be set aside for households at or below the 30, 45, and 50 percent levels, with rents ranging between $488 and $1,128 per month.
Plans also call for on-site supportive services, including financial literacy workshops, college mentoring, and after-school tutoring.
M2A Architects is designing the project, which is named for Paul Revere Williams, the original architects of the Angelus Funeral Home, and the first African American elected as a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects.
The Angelus Funeral Home Building dates to the 1930s, though its namesake business relocated to Crenshaw Boulevard in the 1960s.
