Venice Community Housing Breaks Ground On New Project

Venice Community Housing (VCH), and Hollywood Community Housing Corporation (HCHC) are breaking ground on their first joint venture, Gateway Apartments, a new permanent supportive housing development.

“ This project combines HCHC’s 25 year record of developing award-winning affordable housing with VCH’s history of providing housing and services to low income people on the west side of Los Angeles,” said Bill Harris, Executive Director of HCHC.

“We are delighted to be working with HCHC on a new building with 20 units available for the area’s most vulnerable homeless individuals” said Steve Clare, VCH Executive Director, “and we are proud to be partnering with St Joseph Center, a leading social service provider in our community to provide wrap- around supportive services to all of our tenants at Gateway Apartments.”

A Groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday, March 5th at the 13368 Beach Avenue site.

Speaking at the ceremony was Los Angeles Councilmember Mike Bonin, and representatives from the Community Development Commission of LA County, the Department of Health Services of LA County, the City’s Housing and Community Investment Department, and St. Joseph Center.

Design of this beautiful new residence is by award-winning architecture firm Brooks + Scarpa Architecture, which has created a wonderful contemporary building that will meet the needs of the residents. The architecture incorporates a green approach which will result in a LEED certification.

Materials were chosen for durability, sustainability and low environmental impact. The property will be built by Dreyfuss Construction, an experienced local contractor.

The site for the new housing is within easy walking distance of employment opportunities and services, and close to transit.

Funding for the project was provided by the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee and the National Equity Fund, the Los Angeles County Community Development Commission, the Housing and Community Investment Department of the City of Los Angeles, with a subsidy by the Los Angeles

County Department of Health Services. Construction lending is provided by Chase.
