One year after breaking ground in Van Nuys, prefabricated modular units are now being hoisted into place at Oatsie's Place, a new permanent supportive housing complex from Daylight Community Development, Decro Corp., and the Downtown Women's Center.

Located 16015 W. Sherman Way in Van Nuys, the project will eventually feature a total of 46 apartments reserved for formerly homeless persons and survivors of domestic violence. Plans call for a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom dwellings.

Studio One Eleven is designing modular development, which will be arranged to provide space for on-site amenities including a rooftop deck and courtyard.

The building is named for activist and journalist Marylouise Oates, who helped the Downtown Women’s Center raise funds for housing.

At the time of its March 2022 groundbreaking, the project was on track for completion in 2023.

Oatsie's Place follows several other projects now being built by Decro and Daylight - including the Vanowen Apartments in North Hollywood - which also make use of modular units.
