Work is underway on Metro @ Compton Senior Apartments, a $19.5-million housing community near several transit stops, including the light rail Metro Blue Line.
The project is being developed by Meta Housing Corp. of Los Angeles, which specializes in building subsidized housing for families and senior citizens. Residents of Metro @ Compton must be 55 or older.
The County of Los Angeles Housing Authority helped fund the 75-unit complex under construction at 302 N. Tamarin Ave. in Compton. The development is across the street from the recently completed Compton Senior Center.
