Long Beach-based design studio City Fabrick has unveiled renderings of The Lake House, a proposed supportive housing development slated to rise just north of MacArthur Park.
The project, which would replace two smaller apartment buildings at 437 S. Westlake Avenue, is being developed by Community Development Partners. Plans call for the construction of a five-story edifice featuring 63 studio and one-bedroom apartments - ranging between 400 and 550 square feet in size - priced for households earning 30 percent or less than the area median income.
The contemporary low-rise structure will offer fully-furnished apartments, as well as on-site supportive services provided by Union Station Homeless Services.
Other project components include a shared courtyard and a landscaped rooftop deck. A six-car parking garage is also planned at the building's ground level, accessible via a rear alley.
The approximately $34.2-million development is funded in part by Proposition HHH, the $1.2-billion bond measure passed by the City of Los Angeles in 2016.
Construction is expected to begin in 2021.
A similar supportive housing development is planned one block south near the intersection of Westlake Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard.
