Venice Community Housing Corporation has filed plans to construct new permanent supportive housing near the corner of Lincoln Boulevard and Rose Avenue in Venice.

The approximately 13,000-square-foot project site, located at 718-722 E. Rose Avenue, currently serves as VCHC's headquarters.  According to a case filing with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning, the non-profit developer intends to raze the existing one-story buildings and playground to make way for a 21,000-square-foot building featuring 35 units of affordable housing catering to persons with special needs.

Requested entitlements include off-menu density bonus incentives, such as a height increase of 20 feet beyond the 35-foot maximum allowed by the Venice Coastal Specific Plan.

The project will eventually be considered at the Los Angeles City Planning Commission.

VCHC recently completed a 21-unit affordable apartment complex in Del Rey.

Last year, the Wilshire Grand claimed the title of the West Coast's tallest building, with a slender spire that peaks 1,100 feet above Downtown Los Angeles.  But a newly proposed tower just up the street seems to be gunning for its crown at the highest tower west of the Mississippi River.

Last week, Chinese developer Shenzhen New World Group filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to redevelop the 1980s L.A. Grand Hotel Downtown at 333 S.
