Veteran Commons: New Supportive/Affordable Housing in Predevelopment

Co-general partners Abode Communities and PATH Ventures were selected by the Los Angeles County Development Authority to bring 100 new affordable homes to the City of Downey. This vibrant, mixed-use development will combine supportive and affordable housing for chronically homeless Veterans and Veteran families with 14,000 sf of open space and a 4,400 sf Workforce Development Hub serving both the residents and the community at-large with job search assistance, employment training, and skill building services. Residential amenities include a 1,500 square foot resident center, four case management/resident services offices, and a Veteran’s memorial public art located at the corner of Gardendale and Garfield.

The development is anticipated to begin construction in December 2021.
