Located at 5138 S. Broadway is South Los Angeles, the project was built in partnership with Aedis Real Estate Group and Hoffman Management and Construction Corporation, and consists of a four-story building featuring 49 apartments on a corner lot. The housing on the second, third, and fourth floors is capped by a rooftop deck, while resident amenities and supportive services are located at street level.

KTGY designed the project, which is arranged around a central courtyard, and has a monochrome metal exterior highlighted by a perforated steel entry canopy.

“With this series of apartment buildings, Hope Street Development team continues to refine its unique technology with the potential to transform modular housing,” said KTGY associate principal Mark Oberholzer in a statement. “Site work and foundations are done on site, while the modules – including customized interior finishes and fittings – are manufactured off-site and craned into place. As the housing crisis continues, these projects are efficiently delivering new residences and services to people very much in need.”

Hope on Broadway is one of three under construction developments from Hope Street Development Group, joining projects now rising in Hyde Park and Willowbrook. The same team previously developed the Hope on Alvarado apartments in Westlake.
