New apartments and juice bar opening soon on Temple Street

HISTORIC FILIPINOTOWN — The large amount of money being spent to build large, new apartment buildings along Temple Street appears to be paying off, at least for one developer.

The $30 million HōM apartments on Temple at Robinson Street has yet to open. But already more than 35% of the 67 apartments in the block-long complex have been pre-leased, with all but one of the one-bedroom units having been taken at monthly rents of up $2,370, according to representatives of developer Sharp Capital.  The ground-floor retail space has also been leased by a probiotic juice shop  called Drink Houz, which will be serving cold press juices as well as coffee on a stretch of Temple at Robinson Street that has few such amenities.

Rents for the one- to three bedroom apartments range for $1,900 to $3,400. The first residents are expected to begin moving in later this month.

“Compared to other options in Silver Lake north of the 101, which are often older properties in need of refurbishing and updates in amenities, HōM is very attractive and the reason we have been so successful,” according to a statement issued by company representatives.

HōM is  one of several new residential developments that are planned or are under construction in the Temple Street corridor that cuts through the southern section of Echo Park and Historic Filipinotown. The large amount of new housing  has raised concern among nearby residents about increased congestion and loss of street parking.

Here’s  a run down of some of the Temple projects:

  1. This should be a big boost to the Hungry Pig.
    Also, I get that they are new…but those are some crazy prices for a 1 bedroom by the freeway.

  2. Have living in this tacky overpriced dump while developers from Beverly Hills do 2 years of construction after tearing down the Filipino Community center directly accross the street and replacing it with more apartment buildings that are destroying this neighborhood.

    • This neighborhood is a ghetto trash town to begin with, there’s not much you can do to make it worse. Building new housing is a good thing when there’s a housing crisis, DUH

    • Nothing was teared down to develop this site. It was a vacant lot for over 10 years which housed crackheads and prostitutes.

      • Gotta love when people bitch and moan about gentrification when what we’re talking about is vacant lots and abandoned buildings being replaced with new homes. Just typical selfish attitude of “i want my rent to stay exactly the same forever and never increase, and anything that improves the neighborhood that might affect my rent is bad”

    • Silverlake needs more developments like this… out with the old, in with the new!

  3. Looks like an awesome building – this should be a much needed boost to the neighborhood. Hoping Mayor Garcetti can keep pushing forward on his plan to add 100,000 new apartment units in Los Angeles so we don’t have to keep dealing with rental rates that keep becoming more and more unaffordable to LA’s working class!

  4. The commandos from Metro S.W.A.T. will welcome a convenient source for their daily probiotics and wheat grass/espresso shots.
