A new affordable housing community has been proposed for development at 1435 3rd Street in Westlake. The project proposal includes the construction of a residential community offering housing and amenities for seniors at affordable rates. The project site is an empty lot. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted to approve new funding for the proposed affordable and permanent supportive housing complex this week.

West Hollywood Community Housing Corp is the project developer. Architecture firm 64North is designing the building.

The project site was previously entitled for a mixed-use, mostly market-rate apartment building. The site is now approved for constructing a fully affordable 104-unit development. Named Third Thyme, the proposed project will bring 52 one-bedroom apartments reserved for formerly homeless seniors and 50 apartments reserved for low-income seniors earning between 50 and 60 percent of the area’s median income. Renderings reveal a contemporary podium-type building featuring a community room, a fitness center, a laundry facility, an open-air courtyard, and a rear yard.

Construction is expected to occur between Spring 2023 and Spring 2025.

The vote by the Board of Supervisors allocates an additional $1 million in Affordable Housing Trust Fund money to the Third Thyme development, supplementing $3 million which had already been allocated to the development.

The developer has two projects in the works on adjacent sites. Third Thyme joins an already-announced project from West Hollywood Community Housing, Miramar Gold, which is now under construction on a neighboring site at 1438 Miramar Street.

  1. Again LA’s affordable housing contingent is taking the lead on architectural design while private development keeps churning out dated garbage.
