Last month, Hollywood Community Housing Corporation celebrated the completion of a new development serving homeless veterans and low-income families in El Monte

The Palo Verde Apartments, located at 4704 Peck Road, consists of a four-story structure featuring 49 residential units with on-site supportive services, including case management, substance abuse treatment, educational classes, and linkages to mental and physical healthcare.  

The $25.7-million project - designed by Shelter LLP and built by Alpha Construction - will be operated in partnership with nonprofit service providers Housing Works and New Direction for Veterans.

The project is seeking LEED Platinum Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, and incorporates features such as a solar hot water system, photovoltaic panels, and recycled materials to that end.

HCHC received more than 2,000 applicants for the property, which is already fully leased.
