Los Lirios is a transit-oriented, mixed-use development that will bring 64 affordable apartment homes and 2,400 sq. ft of community-serving retail to the Boyle Heights neighborhood in Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has partnered with East LA Community Corporation (ELACC) and BRIDGE Housing Corporation on Los Lirios Apartments located adjacent to the METRO Gold Line Soto station. Los Lirios will offer studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartment homes to families earning 30% -60% of Area Median Income (AMI) with 20 apartments set aside for formerly homeless households that are supported by Project-Based Section 8 Vouchers. Planned residential amenities include onsite offices for management and service providers, a workout room, on-site laundry, a community room, a children’s play area, and an outdoor courtyard.
As part of the Metro Joint Development Program, this project seeks to reduce auto use and increase transit ridership by directly linking Metro’s transportation network with retail, commercial, and housing opportunities. East LA Community Corporation will provide social services for residents including afterschool tutoring, health and wellness workshops, and PATH Ventures will provide case management and supportive services for the formerly homeless households.
