In Lincoln Heights, wood framing is now complete for a mixed-use use affordable housing complex from Decro Corp. just west of freshly rebranded LA General Medical Center.

The Brine development, located at 3000 N. Main Street, includes multiple buildings which will feature a combined total of 97 units of affordable and permanent supportive housing. Plans also call for 72,000 square feet of commercial space, which will house medical offices and a market.

Other components of The Brine include services provided by Violence Intervention Program Community Mental Health Center and The People Concern, a Homegirl Café and a childcare center, and a mental health center focused on children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.

The new housing within the complex will include studio, one-, and two-bedroom dwellings, priced for very low- and extremely low-income households as well as transition-aged youth, survivors of domestic violence, seniors, and veterans.

AC Martin is designing The Brine, which includes a new five-story building, as well as a trio of early 20th century houses which are being preserved and incorporated into the apartment complex.

The project's unique name is a reference to the A 1 Eastern Homemade Pickle Company, a long-time occupant of the development site.
