At its meeting on April 18, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted to adopt a resolution approve funding to develop more permanent supportive housing at the sprawling West Los Angeles VA Campus.
The vote, which authorizes the release of approximately $41.6 million in bond funds to developer Century Housing Corporation, will go toward the adaptive reuse of historic Buildings 156 and 157, located the northern edge of the campus. At completion, the two structures should feature a combined total of 112 homes - all reserved for formerly homeless veterans.
That total will include 96 studio units and 14 one-bedroom units, all priced for households earning between 30 and 50 percent of the area median income level. The remaining two apartments will be two-bedroom units reserved for on-site managers.
According to the VA Campus master plan document, Buildings 156 and 157 were previously a component of the property's tuberculosis hospital, and have also been used as a medical clinic.
In total, more than 1,200 homes are slated to be built on the more than 70-acre northern section of the VA Campus, including the 73-unit Building 404 apartments which recently began construction and the Building 207 apartments, which opened earlier this year.
