The four-story development, located at 1000 E. Walnut Street, features 65 studio apartments reserved for formerly homeless and veteran households. Additionally, the complex includes on-site supportive services administered by the Salvation Army and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
At the ground-floor, the building includes the Cynthia and Michael Malone Family Hope Pantry, a roughly 7,700-square-foot facility which allows tenants to select groceries and personal hygiene products at no cost.
Carde Ten designed the Hope Center, which has previously been described as featuring a mix of Art Deco architecture and contemporary design. Amenities include a yoga room, a courtyard, a library, and multiple outdoor decks.
The more than $30-million project was funded by a variety of sources, including a $4.8-million loan provided by the Los Angeles County Development Authority.
The Salvation Army is not done with housing in Southern California. The non-profit is planning a similar 58-unit complex at 5600 Rickenbacker Road in the City of Bell.
