A newly developed co-living apartment complex in East Hollywood is set to be the next property converted to interim housing by Los Angeles County across Project home key.
The property, according to a notice issued by the County, is a three-story structure completed last year at 1164 N. Kenmore Avenue. The property is described as a 29-room co-living facility, laid out as five- to six-bedroom suites with shared kitchens and common areas. This development is considered suitable for transitional-aged youth at risk of homelessness – the building’s target population.
The second round of Project home keywhich provides $1.45 billion in statewide grants for jurisdictions to purchase hotels and apartment buildings to turn into supportive or interim housing, is already being used in the South from California.
Notices distributed earlier this year indicate 18 more properties Los Angeles County hopes to buy with Homekey funds. This total does not include the 16 buildings with the city of Los Angeles agreed to purchase, as well as other jurisdictions such as City of Culver and El Monte.
The project site is a few blocks west of the Vermont/Santa Monica subway station, where non-profit developer Little Tokyo Service Center recently opened a 187-unit affordable and permanent supportive housing complex .
