The PATH Metro Villas, built in two phases at 340 N. Madison Avenue, includes three new buildings containing 187 affordable housing units, 98 beds of interim housing, case management offices, and other on-site supportive services.

 “Permanent supportive housing week is a reminder that only homes can solve homelessness,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti in a statement. “With hundreds of similar units already online this year and thousands still to come by year’s end, this development is an example of the steady drumbeat of the progress we promised to Angelenos when they said ‘yes’ to Prop HHH – and a clear marker of how far we’ve come in our mission to surge ahead with high-quality, long-term solutions to homelessness.”

Designed by KFA Architecture designed the project, the new five- and six story buildings are part of a campus which also includes which a town square, community rooms, and rooftop decks. Resource centers, a housing placement center, and mental and community health care clinics are also located on the property.

The PATH Metro Villas, which were built by PATH in partnership with Affirmed Housing, are one of two large new supportive housing developments in the neighborhood. The other, a 454-unit complex dubbed Enlightenment Plaza, recently saw construction begin for its first phase across Madison Avenue.

Other ongoing PATH affordable housing developments include new apartment buildings now rising in West Carson and Hollywood.
