Next door to the Weingart Center's Downtown headquarters, the concrete frame is rising for a new residential tower which will rank as L.A.'s largest permanent supportive housing complex when completed. But it an even larger project across the street may soon take that crown.

At its meeting on June 28, the Los Angeles City Council voted to adopt two resolutions which advance new funding for the construction of another supportive housing tower on the city-owned parking lot at 600 S. San Pedro Street. That move will allow for the California Municipal Finance Authority to issue a combined total of $30 million in bonds to the entities 600 San Pedro LP and 600 San Pedro 2 LP, which are controlled by the Weingart Center and Related Cos.

The project site, which sits at the southeast corner of 6th and San Pedro Streets, is already approved for the construction of a new 18-story building which would feature 302 apartments - including 298 restricted affordable units and four manager units - above approximately 10,230 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and on-site supportive services. Plans also call for a new four-story parking garage with capacity for 212 vehicles, which is intended to serve the existing Weingart Center facility across the street.

At the time the project was approved in by the City Planning Commission in late 2019, Weingart Center had intended for the apartments to be offered to households at the extremely low-, very low-, and low-income levels.

If and when the tower at 600 San Pedro begins construction, Weingart will not be done at the intersection of 6th and San Pedro. The non-profit service provider also has plans for a 12-story building with more than 100 supportive housing units at the same intersection

Weingart and Related are also working on the Alveare apartments, a proposed 335-unit affordable housing complex which would rise not far to the west at 1405 S. Broadway.
