Amenities include covered parking, a community room, a computer lab, a laundry room, a tot lot, and a barbecue area.

The affordable community will serve households earning between 30%-60% of Los Angeles County's AMI.
The community's innovative energy-efficient design allows residents to pay 80% less in monthly utilities. Key sustainability features include rooftop solar photovoltaic systems that collect and offset nearly 100% of the building's total energy usage, drought-tolerant landscaping that conserves 47% more water, efficient plumbing fixtures in every unit, 100% high efficacy lighting fixtures throughout the entire property, and 14 basic community resources that reduce the need to drive.
