Hope Housing Projects
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
X Engineering has been selected as the civil engineer to provide design services for entitlements and final engineering for three supportive housing projects in Los Angeles. Each site is less than one-acre and requires demolition of existing structures to make way for the proposed housing. Shipping container-style units and community amenities will create a modern look and established feel for each program. The projects are being led by private developers and are funded through the county of Los Angeles.
