The project, which replaced two 19th century houses at 418-430 N. Firmin Street, will eventually consist of a seven-story building featuring 45 units of permanent supportive housing and 19 apartments for low-income households.  Plans call for a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom dwellings in addition to a 10-car garage.

Dahlin Group is designing the Firmin Court, which is depicted in a rendering as a Spanish Colonial Revival style building.

The approximately $38.5-million development is a joint venture between Decro Corp. and Innovative Housing Opportunities.

Decro Corp., based in Culver City, is also developing affordable and supportive housing in Lincoln Heights and Van Nuys.

Innovative Housing Opportunities, located in Santa Ana, is partnering on a development in South Los Angeles.
