Construction has commenced for another permanent supportive housing complex at the sprawling VA Campus, the project's development team announced this week.
The Veterans Collective - a consortium which includes Century Housing, Thomas Safran & Associates, and U.S. Vets - recently broke ground on the Building 404 apartments, which will replace a surface parking lot at the corner of Bonsall and Nimitz Avenues, across the street from Jackie Robinson Stadium. Plans call for a new three- and four-story building featuring 73 total apartments - 72 of which will be reserved for formerly unhoused veterans.
A rendering of the the completed Building 404 apartments depict a structure in the Mission Revival style - one of the hallmarks of the VA campus.
According to an application for tax credit financing, the roughly $46-million development is slated to open by late 2024. The apartmenst would cater to households earning at or below 30 and 50 percent of the area median income level, with monthly rents ranging from $621 to $1,108 per month.
Per the social media post, other members of the project team include KFA Architecture, Primus Building Solutions, Walton Construction, and Engelkirk Engineering.
The project is part of a $1.1-billion, multi-phase redevelopment of the Veterans Affairs property which ultimately aims nearly 1,700 homes across the sprawling campus just west of the 405 freeway. Plans call for a mix of ground-up construction and adaptive reuse of existing buildings, as well as the addition of new open spaces and trails which will connect the campus with the future western terminus of the D Line.
