More affordable housing units for artsy Angelenos are headed to Carson.

Meta Housing Corp., a West Los Angeles-based firm, began construction this week on an affordable housing project that is intended for artists, Urbanize reported. The project is named the Carson Arts Colony, and it was designed by Y&M Architects.

Plans call for three three-story buildings at 21205 Main Street, with 46 apartment units that will mix one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans for artists and their families. The development also calls for on-site workspaces and an art gallery for residents to showcase their work. Other amenities include a picnic area, a garden, a gym, a courtyard, a children’s playroom and a community room.

The units will be designated for households that earn 30-45 percent of the area’s median income. Rents will range from $386 for a one-bedroom unit to as high as $1,406 for a three-bedroom unit.

Nearby in Carson, the nonprofit firm Thomas Safran & Associates also started building an affordable housing complex with 51 units for veterans earlier this year on Figueroa Street, Urbanize reported. Thomas Safran & Associates also wants to build a 68-unit affordable housing project at 6650 W. Franklin Ave. in Hollywood.

In May, Meta Housing Corp. filed plans to build 103 senior-affordable units at 4018 Buckingham Road in Baldwin Hills.

Last year, Mayor Eric Garcetti approved three affordable housing projects by Meta Housing and one by Thomas Safran & Associates, to be added to the city’s pipeline for affordable housing. [Urbanize] — Greg Cornfield
