In Hollywood, EAH Housing has broken ground on the Pointe on La Brea, the developers latest Los Angeles area permanent supportive housing complex.
The project, which replaced an auto repair shop at 843-849 N. La Brea Avenue, calls for the construction of five-story building that would feature 50 apartments above at-grade parking for five vehicles.
According to a 2020 application for tax credit financing, the project will include 49 income-restricted units, all reserved for formerly homeless persons earning no more than 30 percent of the area median income. At the time, the apartments were expected to rent for $592 per month.
FSY Architects is designing the contemporary podium-type building, which will also include a community room, a courtyard, and a rooftop deck.
The total estimated cost of the project, at $32.3 million, amounts to a per-unit price tag of $647,000.
Construction is expected to occur over a roughly two-year period.
EAH Housing, which previously developed a permanent supportive housing complex in South Los Angeles, is also behind new affordable housing developments at three different sites in Santa Monica, as well as a new project in West Hollywood.
