Hope on Hyde Park Aims to Create Deepened Sense of Community
A 60,000-square-foot affordable transitional housing community, Hope on Hyde Park, recently broke ground in Los Angeles. The five-story residential community is located on a .49-acre site along the Crenshaw Corridor – a low-rise commercial passageway in the Crenshaw neighborhood. Hope on Hyde Park is anticipated for summer 2022 completion.
Constructed from locally fabricated modular building units and comprised of 98 steel modular units, the community is designed to be an affordable transitional housing solution for the chronically homeless that provides full wraparound services. With the goal of creating a community with privacy and safety as well as a deepened sense of community, Hope on Hyde Park will be constructed around a central courtyard and feature outdoor community space.
“We’re honored to partner with Aedis Real Estate Group to bring to life their vision for an innovative, affordable and modular transitional housing community in the heart of South Los Angeles,” said John Kately, project executive at C.W. Driver Companies. “Designed to provide residents with onsite support services and a true sense of community, we’re proud to help realize a residential community that will help support the local homeless population, and provide the foundation and support needed for these individuals to get back on their feet.”
Hope on Hyde Park will include studio and one-bedroom options ranging from 400 to 480 square feet and are supported by the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services and the nonprofit Brilliant Corners.
