Hope on Alvarado creatively utilizes purpose built shipping container style units into a modern and affordable transitional housing community for the Los Angeles homeless population. The building is constructed around a central courtyard, providing privacy, safety and a deepened sense of community. A partially sub-grade parking garage uniquely navigates the slope of the site allowing the garage to be hidden. Parking spaces are provided for social services staff while each resident has a bike- storage space. The five-story Hope on Alvarado offers studios and one-bedroom apartments on a 0.44-acre site at 166 Alvarado Street. Floor to ceiling glazing along the amenity space engages the community and brings movement to the street.
