California-based nonprofit EAH Housing plans to redevelop a property 7600 S. Vermont Avenue with a mixed-use affordable housing complex, according to a filing yesterday with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The property, which fronts the southeast corner of Vermont and 76th Street, is currently developed with a series of low-rise commercial buildings.  EAH intends to raze these structures to make way for a four-story edifice that would feature 50 apartments above a 26-car garage.

The developer's website lists a large portfolio, with numerous projects completed in Hawaii and Northern California.

Plans are also in the works for a senior affordable housing complex less than a mile south at 88th Street.

The City of Los Angeles Isn’t Creating As Much Housing As It Used To. Why?

"Starting two years ago, things started to change in the City. A series of policies were enacted that have made it much more difficult to create housing...."

If every jurisdiction in California addressed housing the way the City of Los Angeles has over the past few decades, the state would have nothing close to the crisis we have today.

In Los Angeles, planning case timelines are some of the fastest in the state. Unlike other jurisdictions, the City has honored state laws that mandate cases that conform to zoning be approved. Historically, fees have been low. The processing of permits and inspections are better than any jurisdiction I have worked in during my career.
