Vista Ballona, located on a previously vacant lot at 3960 Grand View Boulevard, consists of a six-story edifice that will feature 50 one- and two-bedroom apartments, reserved for households earning at or below 30 and 60 percent of the area median income. Plans also call for 12 units to be set aside for persons with developmental disabilities. 

According to a June 2019 staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, the apartments were expected to command rents between $285 and $1,746 per month.
