Construction is underway for a permanent supportive housing development in West Adams.  

The PATH Villas Montclair, now rising from a previously vacant lot at 4220 Montclair Street, will consist of a five-story edifice containing 46 studio apartments for formerly homeless persons and a pair of two-bedroom manager's units.  Plans also call for 14 parking spaces at the building's ground level.


Gonzalez Goodale Architects is designing the project, which is depicted in renderings as a contemporary low-rise structure.  A project description indicates that the apartments will be accompanied by a community room, case manager's offices, a community garden, and outdoor amenities on the second and fifth levels.

According to a staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, the affordable units will be priced for households earning at or below 35, 45, 50, and 60 percent of the area median income.  Rents will range from $509 to $763 per month.

The $41-million development is publicly funded through a variety of sources, including Measure HHH.

PATH Ventures, the non-profit organization behind the project, is also developing affordable housing in WestlakeSouth Gate, Downey, and Hollywood.

A block north at Adams Boulevard, two additional vacant lots are slated to be developed by Abode Communities with a two-phase senior affordable housing complex known as Adams Terrace.
