Los Angeles Opens Up $165 Million Luxury Apartment for Homeless People

A luxury apartment building funded by the American taxpayer is set to open in Los Angeles‘s Skid Row for homeless people.

The 19-story building, with 278 units, will open within weeks.

According to The Times, the building is meant to be a “self-contained environment that will insulate its formerly homeless residents from the squalor and hopelessness around them.”

Amenities within the building include:

Café

Courtyard

Gym

Art room

Soundproof music room

Computer room

Library

TV lounge

Skid Row is rampant with homelessness, drug addiction, and public displays of mental health issues.

The tower is just one of three planned to be opened by homelessness nonprofit Weingart Center.

The project is expected to cost around $165 million to the taxpayer.

The building will also receive financing from the LA Housing Department, state housing funds, and $56 million in state tax credits.

Each unit is projected to cost around $600,000.

“We’re trying to make our little corner of the world look and feel a little better,” Weingart Center Assn. Chief Executive and President Kevin Murray told the Times.

The project will become the largest permanent housing project in the city.

Homelessness in Los Angeles has seen a nine percent year-over-year and 10 percent rise in the city, according to the 2023 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count.
