New 82-Unit Affordable Housing Community in DTLA’s Skid Row Completed


LAMP Lodge, a new, 82-unit affordable housing community in Downtown Los Angeles’ Skid Row neighborhood, has officially opened to the public. The project, located at 656-660 Stanford Ave, will provide affordable and accessible housing to individuals and families who have faced the challenge of homelessness.

The project is a development of Meta Housing and The People Concern, one of LA County’s largest housing and social service agencies. Meta Housing assembled the capital and managed the construction of The Lodge from the ground-up.

“In 2017, recognizing that the property was in severe disrepair and offered no accessible features, The People Concern decided to completely rebuild and began relocating and rehousing its tenants,” said Aaron Mandel, Executive Vice President at Meta Housing. “The building was then demolished, and the Meta Housing team was able to begin construction to ultimately transform The Lodge from an obsolete 50-unit building into a beautifully designed and modernized 82-unit community, boasting a central courtyard, community room, garden boxes, modern security system, and full laundry service room, with accessibility features and accessible units available.”

John Maceri, CEO of The People Concern, says the redevelopment of The Lodge came after years of its integration into the Skid Row community, serving as an essential center for individuals in the local area looking for guidance, support, and a sense of belonging.

“The People Concern will continue providing ongoing supportive services to tenants at The Lodge, as our involvement with the property since the early 90s has allowed us to build a rapport with the local community and implement a model of integrated and comprehensive care that empowers residents to navigate the multi-faceted obstacles in their lives. This ultimately helps residents regain a sense of agency, empowering them to connect and contribute to their communities.”

In addition to The People Concern, partners in the redevelopment of Lamp Lodge include Los Angeles County’s Development Authority, Department of Mental Health, and Department of Health Services, California Department of Housing and Community Development, City of Los Angeles’s Housing Department and Housing Authority, the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco, with additional debt and equity financing respectively from JP. Morgan Chase Bank, Boston Financial Investment Management, and the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee. KFA Architecture led architectural efforts for the project.
