SPF:a Chosen to Add Affordable Housing to Historic San Pedro YWCA
We are excited to share that SPF:a has been chosen to design a low-income housing addition to the historic YWCA Harbor Area and South Bay in San Pedro. The new 100% affordable housing construction will be sited directly adjacent to an existing YWCA building, a landmarked board-and-batten structure by the prolific American architect Julia Morgan (1872-1957). The project, being led by the non-profit housing developer the Grapevine Economic Development Fund, is anticipated to include the addition of an on-site daycare center and approximately 35 one- and two-bedroom housing units targeted for single women with children.
The project is still in the early stages of design and SPF:a is working closely with Grapevine, the YWCA Harbor Area and South Bay, the local community, and the city of Los Angeles to define the site and determine the most cost-effective approach.
