December 12th, 2012 Comments off

mmaltzan reports the Skid Row Housing Trust in Los Angeles is adding 102 modular housing units for homeless persons to an existing single-story building, called the Star Apartments at Sixth and Maple. The mixed use building, designed by architect Michael Maltzan, encompasses 95,000 square feet and will have retail on the ground floor, community spaces on the second floor, and modular housing floors three through six. Marking the first multi-unit residential unit employing modular techniques in LA, MHProNews has learned the energy efficiency housing is on track to be LEED Certified Gold, and will cost $19.3 million.
