A pair of 1950s triplexes in North Hollywood could make way for a permanent supportive housing development, according to an application submitted yesterday to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.
The proposed project, slated for a property at 5050 N. Bakman Avenue, calls for the construction of a multi-story building featuring 40 permanent supportive housing units - including 32 very low-income apartments and seven low-income apartments.
Requested entitlements include density bonus incentives allowing for an increase in floor area and reductions to required open space and side-yard setbacks. The project is eligible for streamlined permitting in accordance with AB 2162, legislation passed last year by California State Assemblymember David Chiu.
The proposed apartment complex is being developed as a joint venture between Daylight Community Development and Decro Corporation.
Decro, which is based out of Culver City, is also developing permanent supportive housing in Westlake and Lincoln Heights.
Several market-rate developments are currently planned or under construction nearby in North Hollywood, including a 65-unit building a block north at 5110 Bakman Avenue and a mixed-use structure at Lankershim Boulevard and Otsego Street.
