An auto repair shop in Venice could make way for a permanent supportive housing complex, according to plans submitted last week to the City of Los Angeles.  

The project, proposed by non-profit developer Venice Community Housing Corporation, would rise at 2467-2471 Lincoln Boulevard.  Plans call for the construction of a 40-unit apartment building, as well as the reuse of a single-story structure currently occupied by the organization Safe Place for Youth.

Requested entitlements include density bonus incentives to allow increased floor area and height, as well as reduced parking and step-back requirements.

The project is currently on track to receive $5.4 million in Measure HHH funds, contributing to a total budget of $19.5 million.

It is one of four supportive housing developments now in the works for Venice, including Thomas Safran & Associates' Thatcher Yard project, Venice Community Housing's Rose Avenue apartments, and the Reese-Davidson Community.
