Skid Row Housing Trust’s newest development to rise in Downtown Los Angeles will have a second-story terrace and a modern design.

KFA Architecture offered a first look at the seven-story, 100-unit project, which will be built at 519 E. 7th Street, Urbanize reported. All but one of the units will be designated as permanent supportive housing; the other will be reserved for the building manager. Of those units, 81 will be in the new building and the other 19 in a neighboring property that will be renovated.

The project, called SP7, will include a roof deck a community gardens. There will be supportive services on-site as well. Altogether the project will be 42,600 square feet.

It will add to Skid Row Housing’s two-dozen developments downtown.

The project is near three other Skid Row Housing Trust-owned complexes. In December 2017, the company cleared an area nearby, at 7th and South Wall streets, for the construction of a 54-unit supportive apartment building.

Skid Row Housing Trust first proposed the SP7 project in August 2016 and has a $48 million budget.

The city has taken steps in recent years to address the homeless crisis, particularly affecting Downtown. That includes building temporary shelters citywide and providing funds for supportive housing projects through Measure HHH. [Urbanize] — Dennis Lynch
