Nonprofit developer A Community of Friends is nearing completion on Arlington Square, a new affordable housing complex in Arlington Heights.

The four-story building, located at the corner of Venice Boulevard and Arlington Avenue, features 48 studio and one-bedroom apartments which are set aside for special needs individuals.  The target population for the low-rise development are formerly homeless individuals, those with mental illness, and veterans.

Designed by Y&M Architects, the project features amenity spaces such as a common room, a fitness center, on-site laundry facilities and a landscaped courtyard.

ACOF is pursuing LEED Gold Certification for the development.

Slow Progress at San Pedro Small Lot Development

24 on Centre broke ground in October 2017.

Ten months ago, Santa Clarita-based Williams Homes broke ground on a small lot subdivision in San Pedro.  The project, which replaces a vacant lot at the intersection of 8th and Streets, is known as 24 on Centre.  Plans call for 24 single-family residences, all of which would feature a rooftop deck and a parking garage.
