EAST LOS ANGELES — An affordable housing developer is planning to build more than 100 apartments and 5,000-square-feet of retail space across from the Whittier Boulevard entrance of Calvary Cemetery.
Meta Housing Corp. would build the apartment buildings on two separate sites catty-corner from each other at Whittier and Downey Road, according to a Los Angeles County Planning Department summary. Both sites, on the northwest and southeast corners, have been used to store and build concrete burial vaults.
The entire project would consist of a 42-unit building with 1,300-square-feet of ground-floor commercial space and a 32-space parking lot. The second building would be a four-story, 71-unit apartment building with 3,700-square-feet of ground-floor retail space and ground-floor and an underground parking. The specific location of each building was not provided in the county summary of the project.
It’s not clear when Meta, a major affordable housing developer, plans to begin work on the project. The Eastsider has contacted Meta for more details.
