Nonprofit housing organization EAH Housing has begun construction on Agave, a 58-unit affordable housing development in Altadena. The project, in partnership with Union Station Homeless Services, is aimed at providing permanent supportive housing for formerly unhoused individuals.

“As many cities in LA County, Altadena is dealing with a rapidly growing need for not only affordable housing but special needs and permanent supportive housing,” Laura Hall, EAH Housing CEO and President, said in a statement. 

The four-story building, located at 2052 Lake Ave., will offer a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments for formerly unhoused individuals making 30% of the local Area Median Income. Residents will have access to various amenities, including a central courtyard, common spaces, bicycle parking, 18 parking spaces for residents and staff, and on-site laundry facilities.

All units will feature 100% energy-efficient appliances, window coverings, and walk-in closets. Union Station Homeless Services will provide comprehensive supportive housing services tailored to residents’ unique needs. The development will also ensure access to the Homeless Management Information System and Coordinated Entry System, as required by federal regulations.

U.S. Bank is one of the financing participants in the Agave project, the statement indicated. 

Victoria Knapp, Chair of the Altadena Town Council, praised the project’s local focus. 

“Agave is the direct response to the evolving needs of the local Altadena area,” she said. “I am thrilled that we were able to work directly with Union Station Homeless Services to ensure our residents have direct access to high-quality support and on-site services.”

The development is expected to be completed in 2025.

Established in 1968, EAH Housing has grown to serve over 25,000 low-income families, seniors, veterans, formerly unhoused individuals, people with special needs, transitional age youth, artists, farm workers, and students across more than 240 communities in California and Hawaii.
