Heavy equipment has appeared at the former site of a surface parking lot in the Westlake community, where non-profit developer SRO Housing Corp. is prepping for construction at its latest supportive housing complex.


The property, located a block south of Wilshire Boulevard at 1230 W. Ingraham Street, is entitled for the construction of a seven-story structure containing 121 apartments above a semi-subterranean parking garage with accommodations for 42 vehicles.

According to a landing page on the SRO Housing website, the complex will serve unhoused veterans and other individuals, with rents set to be affordable for households earning at or below 30 and 60 percent of the area median income.

KFA Architecture is designing the contemporary podium-type building, which will incorporate amenities such as a courtyard and a rooftop deck, as well as on-site supportive services, a lounge, a community kitchen, and a laundry facility.

The approximately $60-million development is being funded through a variety of sources, including Los Angeles County's affordable housing trust fund, Measure HHH, and tax-exempt bonds.

SRO Housing is also in the midst of construction on a similar 100-unit supportive housing complex a few blocks north on Hartford Avenue.
