50 Residential units for supportive and affordable housing broke ground on September 4, 2019 at a vacant lot at Vermont Avenue and 76th Street. Urbanize LA describes the project as, "a four-story building featuring 49 affordable units - in studio and one-bedroom floor plans - with a two-bedroom manager's apartment, 2,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, a 26-car parking garage."
The ground floor will also include a recording studio, retail and a community meeting space. Residents will benefit from a community kitchen, bike storage, laundry room and staff dedicated to providing supportive services.
Mayor Garcetti celebrated, "I want you to...picture 150 plus of these, because we have never had a pipeline like this in our city's history."
Councilmember Harris-Dawson declared, "We are on our journey to end homelessness as we know it."
The project is funded by Measure HHH funds as is another project under construction at 88th and Vermont.
Construction is expected to take 18 months.
