At its meeting yesterday, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted to approve new funding for a proposed affordable and permanent supportive housing complex on a vacant lot at 1435 W. 3rd Street in Westlake,
The project site, previously entitled for a mixed-use, mostly market-rate apartment building, is now slated for the construction of a fully affordable 104-unit development by West Hollywood Community Housing Corp. The proposed project would include 52 one-bedroom apartments reserved for formerly homeless seniors and 50 apartments reserved for low-income seniors earning between 50 and 60 percent of the area median income level.
The proposed development, called Third Thyme, will also include a community room, a fitness center, a laundry facility, an open-air courtyard, and a rear yard. Architecture firm 64North is designing the contemporary podium-type building.
Per a landing page on the West Hollywood Community Housing (WCHC) website, construction of Third Thyme is expected to occur between Spring 2023 and Spring 2025.
The vote by the Board of Supervisors allocates an additional $1 million in Affordable Housing Trust Fund money to the Third Thyme development, supplementing $3 million which had already been allocated to the development.
Third Thyme joins an already-announced project from West Hollywood Community Housing, Miramar Gold, which is now under construction on a neighboring site at 1438 Miramar Street. Plans call for the construction of a seven-story building featuring 94 rental apartments - including 47 one-bedroom units reserved for formerly homeless households and 46 one-, two-, and three-bedroom units for households earning 50 percent or less than the area median income.
Completion is expected in 2024, per the WHCH website.
