Santa Fe Springs Project with Affordable Units Gets Entitlements
The project will have 139 units.

A project in Santa Fe Springs that will offer housing for low-income and vulnerable seniors and families, in addition to those experiencing homelessness, has received entitlements.
The project is at Lakeland Road and Laurel Avenue, across the street from the Amelia Mayberry Park.

The development, designed by SVA Architects, has three housing communities with a total of 139 units.
It will cost the city roughly $110,000 per unit and is expected to break ground next month.
Newport Beach-based The Richman Group will build three buildings with a total of 102 affordable apartment units.

The buildings will be spread across nearly 4 acres.
One of the buildings will be four stories tall and house 50 seniors. The other two buildings will be three stories tall and have 52 family apartment units.
The buildings’ amenities will include a clubhouse, fitness area and laundry room.

The Whole Child, a nonprofit based in Whittier that helps children in vulnerable communities, is building a three-story building at the site. It can provide interim housing for up to 40 homeless families at a time.
Its amenities will include consultation rooms, a family room, a teen area, a computer lab and a playground.

“This project will bring a much-needed specialized facility for homeless families to the Southeastern region of L.A. County, where currently none exists,” Constanza Pachon, chief executive of The Whole Child, said in a statement. “We are deeply grateful to the city of Santa Fe Springs and Supervisor Janice Hahn of the Fourth District for their commitment to our shared vision of ending family homelessness. This project would not be en route to becoming a reality without their unwavering support, including generous construction funding.”

The project will also have 18 townhomes that will be sold to low-income families. The townhomes will be 1,350 square feet each and have three bedrooms and a two-car garage.
