Meta Housing Corporation Wraps Up Work on 74-Unit Senior Housing Project in La Puente


Meta Housing Corporation has finished construction on a 74-unit, affordable senior housing development in La Puente, CA. The $29 mil project, Arboleda Apartments, was built by RAAM Construction, along with AMJ Construction Management Inc and Y&M Architects.

The 71.5k sf property, located at 1040 North Unruh Ave, consists of two conjoined four-story wood-frame buildings in La Puente, a low-income area where budget-friendly housing for seniors is scarce. Arboleda Apartments contains 59 one-bedroom apartments and 15 two-bedroom apartments with balconies attached to some of the units.

The apartments, which replace four detached family homes on the site, feature Mission-style architecture with white stucco and red roof tiles, as well as numerous ornamental elements such as awnings, a central courtyard, and stucco columns joined by wrought-iron. Common-area amenities for residents include two manager’s offices, a community room, second-floor sky deck, library, second-floor laundry room, fitness center, and tech/computer room.

“The need for affordable housing has grown in recent years due to rising home prices and an overall housing shortage, and the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated that need immensely,” says Richard Lara, President and CEO of RAAM Construction. “La Puente is a city with strong demand for affordable rentable units, and Arboleda Apartments will greatly serve the local community by providing brand-new residential units for seniors who could not otherwise afford housing in the area.”

In further efforts to help the senior residents of this development, 38 apartments are fully ADA-accessible units and seven apartments are equipped with hearing and visual impaired life safety devices. A total of 50% of the apartments are fully accessible units and 4% are for the hearing and visually impaired.

The newly built apartments are situated in close proximity to two Northgate Markets; CVS; restaurants including El Sushi Loco Sushi and Mariscos La Puente, In-N-Out Burger, and Little Caesar’s Pizza; schools including Fairgrove Academy and Valinda School of Academics; Chase Bank; Allen J. Martin Park; and La Puente Handball Club.
