  • Size : 42,643 SF / 100 Units (combined)
  • Project Type(s) : Affordable Housing


  • SP7 is an affordable housing project for formerly homeless individuals in downtown Los Angeles. The ground level street façade, a key component in creating connection to the neighborhood and a rewarding pedestrian experience, has been designed with glazing along both San Pedro and 7th Streets, providing transparency to the project, and a clear entry to the community room for open events and programs. Pedestrians are also allowed a glimpse through the residential lobby to the soft green space of the ground level garden beyond.
  • To provide space for residents to connect, there are a variety of open spaces located throughout the project to support gatherings of varying sizes. Several patios, roof decks and gardens are grouped with programmed spaces such as community rooms, laundry rooms, computer rooms and recreation spaces to create a holistic living experience.
  • Residents are encouraged to socialize and participate in healthy food choices through the inclusion of two community garden locations in the project- one at the corner terrace on the second floor, and one at the roof deck.
