The Del Rey Square Senior Housing project represents the first affordable development of its kind in over ten years located in an upscale Westside Los Angeles neighborhood. Once again, Withee Malcolm demonstrates its understanding of the challenges of the typology by minimizing the 124-unit complex’s street-level presence stepping back the four-story building to three as the development meets its single family neighbors at the back. Landscaping, including recreational courtyards, further enhances not only the immediate property, but adds to the character of the entire neighborhood as a whole.

The Del Rey community offers amenities and safety features not commonly found in average market-rate apartments. Careful attention to ease of movement is reflected in residents’ direct access from secure parking to ground floor community spaces that include a lounge, game room and kitchenette. All doors slide electronically to make circulation easier for seniors. Second floor amenities include a computer lab, fitness room, media room, and lounge space for relaxation.
