LOS ANGELES—Construction has begun on Argyle Apartments, a 40-unit affordable housing project at 1600 N. Western Ave in Hollywood. The four-story structure is meant to house both seniors and young families. AMCAL Multi-Housing is developing the property, which will be LEED certified.
Killefer Flammang Architects put the plans together for the project. In order to provide for both the younger and older generations, Argyle Apartments will have one-bedroom units for seniors at the rear of the building and three-bedroom apartments for families at the front.
“This division will permit multiple generations to live together in one building while enabling them to enjoy separate quarters with their peers. Open spaces and community amenities will be shared by all tenants to encourage community cohesiveness,” said Wade Killefer, KFA design principal, in a statement.
