Weingart Center Affordable Housing Project

One of AXIS/GFA’s most recent affordable housing designs, Weingart Centre is a community-focused and partially publicly funded project that will deliver affordable housing and supported living programs to disadvantaged members of Los Angeles’ Skid Row neighborhood.


Los Angeles, California


Weingart Center


A 19-story high-rise including 15 stories of affordable housing and supported living space, with solar panels and integrated green technologies.

As part of a project for Weingart Center – a Los Angeles-based community services organization that provides on-site services in support of homeless residents of L.A.’s Skid Row neighborhood – AXIS/GFA is proud to be named architect of record for Weingart’s latest transitional supportive housing project. As part of the project’s mandate, the AXIS/GFA team will incorporate administrative, food service, health service delivery, and 15 stories of 100% affordable or funded residential facilities throughout the building’s 19 stories. Rooftop solar panels will both reduce the building’s environmental footprint, as well as reduce operating costs for increased program delivery.

The project is a collaboration between AXIS/GFA’s Los Angeles and San Francisco studios.  Construction management is by ECI, with general contracting by Swinerton.
