Nine months after our last update, a new affordable and permanent supportive housing development from Decro Corp. and Innovative Housing Opportunities is all but finished just west of Downtown Los Angeles

Firmin Court, which replaced a pair of 19th century homes located at 418-430 N. Firmin Street, consists of a seven-story building featuring 45 units of permanent supportive housing and 19 apartments for low-income households. The new housing comes in a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans.

At the time the project was submitted for tax credit financing in 2019, it was expected to cost $38.5-million and serve households earning at or below 30 and 60 percent of the area median income. Rents were expected to range from $509 to $1,512 per month.

According to a project website, rents for the general affordable units at Firmin Court are set at $1,470 per month. However, the application period for the apartments has already closed.
