The Gateway at Willowbrook, a new, 105-unit affordable senior community, is part of a landmark mixed-use project that includes a public library—the first of its kind in Los Angeles County. The apartments, which are located on the top floors of the five-story building above the ground floor library, have a separate entry on the street parallel to the main library entrance. The contemporary Mediterranean architecture with its balconies and two, much appreciated courtyards provides a suburban sensibility to the residential component of the development. The distinctive clock tower on the public-facing corner signals the building as a gateway project that establishes a new town center for the Willowbrook community.
On the first floor a spacious community room for residents is located immediately adjacent to the public community room. Other amenities include landscaped gardens with an outdoor lounge, fire pit, and barbecue area. Residents also enjoy access to a state-of-the-art fitness center, laundry facilities, and secured entry with intercom. The property features one- and two-bedroom units.
Located just south of the Willowbrook-Rosa Parks Station, a busy transfer station between Metro’s Blue and Green lines, The Gateway offers residents convenient access to public transportation.
