A year after our last update, completion nears for Meta Housing Corp.'s redevelopment of the Lamp Lodge site in Downtown Los Angeles.

Located at 660 S. Stanford Avenue, the project replaced Lamp's three-story, 50-unit single-room occupancy apartment building with a new seven-story structure that will feature 82 one- and two-bedroom dwellings on its upper levels.

All of the new apartments are to be reserved for households earning at or below 30 percent of the area median income, according to a June 2019 staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee.

KFA Architecture and Jag Interiors are designing the project, which closely resembles conceptual renderings depicting the apartment complex as a colorful podium-type building. Additional on-site features include a communal laundry facility, a community room, and an open courtyard.

Completion of the Lamp Lodge development is anticipated in 2022, general contractor R.D. Olson Construction announced at the time of its groundbreaking in 2020.

The project site, located just north of 7th Street, follows a trio of similar supportive housing projects developed by Skid Row Housing Trust.

Meta's other local projects include new affordable and supportive housing in East Los Angeles, Sylmar, and North Hills.
