In Westlake, non-profit developer West Hollywood Community Housing has commenced work on a new permanent supportive housing complex just north of 3rd Street.
Miramar Gold, now taking shape on a vacant site at 1438 Miramar Street, will consist of a seven-story building featuring 94 rental apartments reserved for low-income and formerly unhoused residents.
According to a June 2022 staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, the apartments will come in a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts, reserved for households earning between 20 and 60 percent of the area median income level. Rents will range from $443 to $1,827 per month.
Miramar Gold has an estimated cost of $46 million, or roughly $489,000 per unit. That total is covered by both public and private sources of funding.
Architecture firm 64North is designing the apartment complex, which will be composed of two seven-story wings connected by pedestrian bridges at each level. Renderings depict a contemporary facade highlighted by varying geometric forms.
Completion is expected in 2024, per the WHCH website.
The proposed project is located on a site previously entitled for a mixed-use, mostly market-rate apartment building, which West Hollywood Community Housing acquired in 2020. The remainder of the site is being entitled separately for a second affordable housing complex.
