A new supportive housing complex will be developed on the site of a metro stop in East Hollywood, Los Angeles. The project proposal includes the development of a supportive housing complex with 94 units and onsite amenities.
Non-profit developer and service provider Little Tokyo Service Center (LTSC) is the project developer and has secured financing for the apartments. Koning Eizenberg Architecture is responsible for the design concepts.
Named Santa Monica Vermont Apartments, construction is expected to begin soon for a new affordable and permanent supportive housing complex. The proposed mixed-use project will rise on properties flanking the B Line’s Vermont/Santa Monica Station. Plans call for the construction of six-story complex featuring 187 apartments and ground-floor commercial space. It total includes 94 units of permanent supportive housing, 91 units of affordable housing priced for very low-income households, and two unrestricted manager’s units.
Per an application to the State of California for tax credit financing, the apartments will come in a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans, with monthly rents ranging from $591 to $1,474 per month.
The project’s ground-floor commercial space will be occupied by community-serving uses, including a health center and a food court. The development will also revamp the plaza wrapping the entrance to the subway station, adding a new bike and mobility hub and improved transit shelters.
Future residents will also have access to supportive services provided by Housing Works.
