A noticed issued by the Los Angeles Housing Department offers up new details regarding a proposed permanent supportive housing complex which replace a surface parking lot and a vacant warehouse on a busy corridor in Wilmington.

The memo, which relates to a pending application for Section 8 project based vouchers, relates to FlyAway Homes' proposed development at 828 W. Anaheim Street. The project, which would rise across a roughly .45-acre site, is described as a five-story building featuring 50 units of permanent supportive housing, as well as ancillary facilities such as bicycle and automobile parking, laundry rooms, and a community room.

Per the memo, the apartments would consist entirely of two-bedroom, two-bathroom units with an average size of 670 square feet. Each would be accompanied by furniture and appliances, with residents also having access to on-site case management, mental healthcare, and substance use services.

As with other FlyAway Homes projects, 828 Anaheim is to be composed of prefabricated modular units built elsewhere and then assembled at the development site. Plans also call for 4,6660 square feet of exterior common space, featuring a lounge area, a dog run, a vegetable garden, and a smoking area.

A 2020 staff report issued by the Housing Department estimated an approximately $17.2-million price tag for the project, with $4.9 million of the cost footed by Measure HHH funds. As of September 2021, the total cost had grown to approximately $18.8 million.

Staff reports have estimated a roughly one-year construction period for 828 Anaheim.

The project sits along a stretch of Anaheim Street in Wilmington which is currently in the midst of a makeover which will add bike lanes and other safety features. Likewise, it joins other affordable and permanent supportive housing developments now taking shape at 841 N. Banning Boulevard, 1355 N. Avalon Boulevard, and 1434 N. Eubank Avenue.
