Earlier this year, KTGY Architecture + Planning unveiled renderings for Hope on Alvarado, a unique homeless housing complex in Westlake that will be constructed out of shipping containers.  Heavy construction of the project is not expected to commence until next year, but it looks like some preliminary work is already underway.

Photographer Michael Hayes snapped a picture from a passing bus which shows that the Streamline Moderne medical office building that previously occupied the property at 166 S. Alvarado Street has been demolished, clearing the way for the new apartments.

The project, which is being developed by Aedis Real Estate Group and the Foundation for Affordable Housing, will feature 84 studio and one-bedroom units, with floor plans between 440 and 480 square feet.
