The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is poised to approve loans totaling up to $28 million for seven affordable housing developments across the region.

The projects, which would generate 588 dwelling units at a combined cost of nearly $280 million, are as follows:

Flor 401 Lofts

At the northeast corner of 7th and Wall Streets, Skid Row Housing Trust hopes to construct a six-story building that would feature 99 studio apartments catering to homeless individuals, homeless veterans, and low-income persons with special needs.

Koning Eizenberg Architecture is designing the project.

The project is budgeted at approximately $38 million, and is seeking $1.5 million in County Affordable Housing Funds.

Adams Terrace

Abode Communities has received approvals from the City of Los Angeles to construct a two-building development at opposite corners of Adams Boulevard and Montclair Street that would total 86 apartments and supportive services.

The projects, budgeted at $41 million, are also seeking $1.5 million in County Affordable Housing Funds.

Florence Apartments

In unincorporated Florence, AMCAL Multi-Housing Company has proposed redeveloping a County library as part of a mixed-use affordable housing complex. 

The project, slated for a one-acre site at 1600-1616 E. Florence Avenue, would create a five-story building featuring 116 units of senior affordable housing, as well as a replacement library at its ground floor. 

VTBS Architects is designing the building, which would rise one block west of the Blue Line's Florence Station.

The $51-million project is seeking approximately $7 million in County funding.

At 14803 South Standford Avenue in West Compton, Hollywood Community Housing Corporation has announced plans to construct a three-story, 85-unit development that would cater to persons at the extremely-low, very-low, and low-income levels.

The proposed low-rise structure would replace a long-vacant property at a cost of $39 million.  HCHC is seeking $8 million in County funding for the project.

Gramercy Place Apartments

The Gramercy Place Apartments, another project by HCHC, would create 64 units catering to low-income seniors on a current parking lot at 2375 W. Washington Boulevard.

Elevation plans for the project, which is being designed by Kevin Daly Architects, depict a contemporary four-story structure with numerous outdoor decks and courtyards.

The project is budgeted at $36.7 million, and is seeking $3 million in Mental Health Housing funds from L.A. County.

Sun Commons

Sun Commons, a project from the non-profit organization Abbey Road, would bring a four-story building featuring 103 residential units at a 1.19-acre site at 6329-6355 Clybourn Avenue in North Hollywood.  The $53-million project will cater to households making between 30 and 60 percent of the Los Angeles area median income.

The project is seeking $1.5 million in Measure H funding from the County.

One of two East Los Angeles projects currently in the planning stages for Meta Housing Corp., the Whittier & Downey development would consist of a three-story edifice containing 42 garden style apartments and approximately 1,161 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
