On Thursday, October 13, 2016, Withee Malcolm Architects joined the City of Baldwin Park and ROEM Corporation to celebrate the grand opening of Metro Village. Located at the northeast corner of Ramona Boulevard and Maine Avenue in Baldwin Park, Metro Village is a new construction, mixed-use, affordable multifamily apartment community on a 1.01-acre site. Metro Village offers one, two, and three-bedroom apartments affordable to families making 60 percent or less of the Los Angeles County Area Median Income and 5,500 square feet of commerce retail space.
“The solutions to providing high-quality affordable housing are as diverse as the communities they serve and Metro Village is an excellent example," said Withee Malcolm Principal Dirk Thelen. "The contemporary architecture coherently addresses the mix of uses—residential, retail, a public plaza and connections to transit—and the urban context to support a welcoming, environmentally-friendly neighborhood and to serve as an important catalyst for revitalization.”
