What do you want your community to look like?

Joint developers Hollywood and Venice Community Housing Corporations presented their design for homeless and affordable housing between North & South Venice Blvd, where the public parking lot is now.

  • Project will span nearly three acres
  • Largest Venice development in the last 100 years  
  • 140 units housing up to 500 tenants  

 1/2 of units for "Permanent Supportive Housing" such as:

  • Chronically homeless w/ disabilities, drug abuse, serious mental illness, and/or physical disability.  Sober living not a requirement.

 1/2 Will be "affordable housing" for:

  • Lower wage earners & low-income artists. 

 Cost per unit estimate:  $340,000, adding land value = $700,000.  The Plan also includes 10,500 sq ft. of commercial retail space and 37,400 sq. ft. for 420 parking spaces, including the original 188 spaces for public parking.  The parking is in the center of each of the two main buildings. 

 The current Open Space (OS) zoning will be replaced by R-3 with a varied roof line of thirty-five feet. RAS3 zoning, with a height of forty-five feet, is proposed to accommodate commercial retail.  There has been no Environmental Impact Report (EIR) or traffic studies to date.  The buildings have no setbacks and are built right up to the sidewalk.  The developers plan to submit their application to the City of Los Angeles in September.

This is NOT a "Done Deal"-you CAN make a difference!

STOP the monster in the median!
