Community Corporation of Santa Monica will soon complete construction of a new building at 1820 14th Street that will provide 38 one-bedroom apartments for seniors in Santa Monica. The development received a $10 million investment from the City of Santa Monica in 2017, and 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 and builds on the City’s commitment to supporting our long-term residents.”

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 and $54,060 annually for a household size of two. 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 If you require assistance applying due to a disability, please call 310-458-8740 and leave a message and a City of Santa Monica staff member will get back to you.
