Slowly but surely, an increase in the supply of housing for the homeless is underway in Downtown Los Angeles.

Skid Row Housing Trust is planning a 100-unit complex in the Flower District, at the intersection of 7th and San Pedro streets.

The nonprofit organization will reveal details of the project, dubbed SP7, to the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council’s Planning and Land Use Committee later this week, Urbanize reported.

The plans for SP7 include two properties: the construction of a six- or seven-story building with 81 apartments at 419 East 7th Street, and the redevelopment of an existing building at 647 South San Pedro Street, which would feature 19 apartments. The former will be designed by Killefer Flammang Architects.

Earlier this year, the housing trust welcomed veterans to its 52-unit complex at 811 South Carondelet Street, a striking white structure called the Six. It’s currently planning two similar buildings at 7th and Wall streets. [Urbanize] — Cathaleen Chen
