Non-profit developer and services provider Penny Lane Centers is planning new permanent supportive housing in the North Hills community, according to plans submitted earlier this year to the City of Los Angeles.

The proposed development, called The Rigby Apartments, would rise from a roughly 29,000-square-foot site at 15314 W. Rayen Street, replacing a small event center.  Plans call for the construction of a new four-story building featuring 64 apartments - including 63 affordable units and one manager's unit - above basement parking for 51 vehicles.

The new housing would come in a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans, a portion of which would be designed to accommodate residents with physical disabilities or visual and hearing impairments.

KFA Architecture is designing The Rigby, which is depicted a contemporary low-rise structure, flanked by a private yard on its eastern property line and a small garden to the south.

The proposed apartment complex is one of three large affordable and supportive housing projects in the works near North Hills Community Park, following Hollywood Community Housing's Luna apartments on Parthenia Place and Meta Housing's Mission Gateway development on Sepulveda Boulevard.

Penny Lane Centers, which was named in honor of The Beatles' 1967 song Penny Lane, is planning a separate affordable housing complex called Sun Commons in North Hollywood.
