The project, known as the Pasadena Hope Center, will consist of a four-story building featuring 65 apartments - all of which would be single-room occupancy save for a manger's unit - above approximately 2,600 square feet of office space for service providers. Plans also call for a 15-car parking lot at the rear of the site.
All residents of the proposed building are to be single adults who meet the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's definition of "homeless," according to a motion from Supervisor Kathryn Barger which was adopted in by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors in October 2021.
Carde Ten is designing the Hope center, which will mix Art Deco architecture with contemporary design. Renderings show a low-rise building with a white-stucco exterior, while plans show residential amenities such as a yoga room, a courtyard, a library, and multiple outdoor decks.
At the time of the project's groundbreaking in October 2021, completion was expected within 14 months.
