New Santa Monica Senior Affordable Housing

Greenway Meadows development nears completion

A new development near completion in Santa Monica will provide 38 apartments to low-income seniors in the community.

Community Corporation of Santa Monica will soon complete construction of a new building–known as Greenway Meadows–at 1820 14th Street that will provide 38 one-bedroom apartments for seniors in Santa Monica, the City announced last week.

The development, which received a $10 million investment from the City of Santa Monica in 2017, will provide apartments across a mix of income levels, with rents ranging from $538 to $1,214 per month, depending on household income.

“The City of Santa Monica knows the strain the cost of housing puts on many in our community, including seniors who have lived here much of their lives,” said Community Services Director Andy Agle. “Greenway Meadows will allow 38 senior households to remain in Santa Monica.”

This new building will feature air conditioning, energy efficient appliances, a community room, an elevator, a laundry room and an on-site manager as well as a Resident Services Coordinator. Apartments will be available for persons with mobility, vision or hearing accessibility needs. The new building is in close proximity to many community amenities, including Memorial Park, the Santa Monica Swim Center and businesses on Pico Boulevard. 

To be eligible, applicants must be 62 years of age or older with a minimum annual income between $16,885, $54,060 annually for a household size of two and $60,840 for households of three. Applicants who live or work in Santa Monica will receive priority on the waitlist. There is no minimum income for households with a Section 8 housing voucher.

Applications are online only and will remain open and ongoing. For more information and to apply online, visit santamonica.gov/housing-greenwaymeadows or call 310-458-8740 and leave a message.
