Another building at the massive West Los Angeles VA Campus is poised for a revamp as permanent supportive housing.
In a vote taken on September 16, the Los Angeles City Council approved the release of up to $17 million in multifamily housing revenue bonds for the adaptive reuse of Building 207. The two-story structure, located at the intersection of Vandergrift and Bonsall Avenues, will be converted into 60 apartments - 59 of which would be reserved for formerly homeless veterans.
The bonds approved by the City Council will supplement approximately $8.2 million in Measure HHH funding already allotted to the project, as well as $5.7 million in funding from Los Angeles County. The total cost of the development is estimated at more than $33 million, according to a 2019 application for state tax credits.

Two neighboring structures - Buildings 205 and 208 - are also poised to be converted into roughly 120 units of supportive housing using funds previously approved by the City Council.
