Los Angeles—The Foursquare Foundation has broken ground on Parkview Living, a new $10 million senior living community in historic Echo Park. The eco-friendly, pedestrian- and transit- oriented, urban infill redevelopment project was designed by the architectural firm KTGY Group Inc. The 75 new affordable senior apartment homes are replacing some older housing units on the 1.24-acre plot.
“The project will bring sorely-needed housing for seniors to Echo Park,” says Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles City Council President. “I want to acknowledge the community members who participated in dialogue with Foursquare to improve the project so that the new senior housing is a better fit for the neighborhood.”
Echo Park is located northwest of Downtown Los Angeles at 1902 Park Avenue. Amenities at Parkview Living include a pool, barbecue area, fitness center, hobby and craft room, computer center, espresso café, rooftop terraces, lounging areas, and a dog park. There is also a 3,000-square-foot multi-purpose room that will be used as a community Chapel. Additionally, there is a “Victory Garden” and potting shed so residents can follow their own horticultural pursuits.
“An affordable senior community like Parkview Living can make all the difference in someone’s life,” said Dr. Greg Campbell, executive director for Foursquare Foundation of Los Angeles.
The property will offer 66 one-bedroom and 9 two-bedroom single-story flats. Each apartment has central heat, ceiling fans, a covered patio or balcony, energy-efficient kitchen appliances, washer/dryer hookups and internet.
