A year-and-a-half after our last update in South Park, the exterior of a new permanent supportive housing complex has been revealed at the southwest corner of 55th and Main Streets.

The project, Gardena-based Highridge Costa Development, located on the former site of an auto repair shop at 5501-5513 S. Main Street, consists of a five-story building that will feature 57 residential units - including 56 supportive housing units and one manager's apartment.

Project approvals include density bonus incentives permitting allowing for a larger structure than would normally be permitted by zoning rules. The apartments are to be set aside for households earning between 30 and 50 percent of the area median income level, making them eligible for the bonuses.

Egan Simon Architecture is designing the Main Street building, which features a courtyard fronting 55th Street to the north and terrace decks on its upper floors.

Highridge Costa's other recent developments include a mixed-use supportive housing development rising just south of Exposition Park and a similar project built near the intersection of 21st Street and Central Avenue.
