The project, which would replace two smaller apartment buildings at 437 S. Westlake Avenue, is being developed by Community Development Partners. Plans call for the construction of a five-story edifice featuring 63 studio and one-bedroom apartments - ranging between 400 and 550 square feet in size - priced for households earning 30 percent or less than the area median income.
The contemporary low-rise structure will offer fully-furnished apartments, as well as on-site supportive services provided by Union Station Homeless Services.
Other project components include a shared courtyard and a landscaped rooftop deck. A six-car parking garage is also planned at the building's ground level, accessible via a rear alley.
The approximately $34.2-million development is funded in part by Proposition HHH, the $1.2-billion bond measure passed by the City of Los Angeles in 2016.
Construction is expected to begin in 2021.
A similar supportive housing development is planned one block south near the intersection of Westlake Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard.
