Nonprofit developer Meta Housing Corp. has unveiled a rendering for the proposed redevelopment of the LAMP Lodge in Downtown Los Angeles.

According to Aaron Mandel, Senior Vice President of Meta Housing Corp., the project would replace the existing LAMP Lodge - a three-story structure at 660 S. Stanford Avenue.  The proposed redevelopment would create a six-story building, providing 82 units of permanent supportive housing for Angelenos experiencing chronic homelessness.

Killefer Flammang Architects is designing the project, which will use outdoor community space to create a holistic environment.  Other communcal features would include an on-site laundry room, community kitchen space, gardens, bicycle parking and supportive services.

Meta is targeting a June 2018 groundbreaking for the $38-million development, and expects to complete construction by December 2019.

In addition to the LAMP Lodge, Meta has active developments in Sylmar and Harbor Gateway.
