Vermont Family Apartments

4915 S. Vermont Avenue, Los Angeles, CA


DEVELOPER: Meta Housing Corporation

The Vermont Family Apartments is a 49 unit intergenerational apartment community and is a great example of how a new multifamily community can meet the needs of local neighborhood residents in a unique way.

Located in South Los Angeles, the local Councilman’s office had identified the need for housing specifically geared toward grandparents caring for their grandchildren.

The project was designed to include special common spaces, including a full-service art studio and classroom, to encourage interactivity among neighbors. In addition, families living in the Vermont Avenue Apartments enjoy a community garden where they grow their own vegetables, as well as special community outreach programs which help to connect grandparents with local services that can assist them in caring for their grandchildren.

The project was financed with 9% tax credits, as well as funding from the Commercial Redevelopment Agency of Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles Housing Department.
