The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is poised to approve an $8.15-million loan to finance the construction of an affordable housing development in the unincorporated Florence-Firestone community.

The Miramonte Apartments, a project from A Community of Friends, would replace a current surface parking lot at 7321 Miramonte Avenue.  Plans call for the construction of a three-story building which would feature 44 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, very-low and lower-income residents, as well as those with special needs.

Other project components would include supportive services such as case management offices, a recreation room, a tot lot, a community garden, laundry facilities, and outdoor decks.

Should the Board of Supervisors vote to approve the project at its meeting Tuesday, a loan would be provided through a mix of County Affordable Housing Funds and Mental Health Housing Funds.

The development site is located two blocks west of the Blue Line's  Florence Station, and one block south of the Florence Library, which AMCAL is hoping to redevelop as part of a larger senior affordable housing complex.
