At a May 9 ceremony, Daylight Community Development, Decro Corp., and the Downtown Women's center marked the completion of NoHo 5050, a new affordable and supportive housing complex located west of Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood.

The project, named for its address at 5050 N. Bakman Avenue, consists of 40 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments, all reserved for formerly unhoused renters - including survivors of trauma.

"Today marks a milestone in our journey towards providing housing for all and fostering inclusive communities,” said Decro chief executive officer Ted Handel in a news release. "With the opening of NoHo 5050, we're not just building housing, we're building a supportive community and providing dignified homes for individuals and families, especially those impacted by gender-based trauma.

FSY Architects is designing the contemporary five-story structure, which also includes features such as a learning center, a community room, and landscaped open space at the rear of the building.

On-site services are to be provided by the Downtown Women's Center.

Funding for NoHo 5050 includes the city's Measure HHH, L.A. County's No Place Like Home program, a pre-development loan from the Corporation for Supportive Housing, and tax credits.

Decro Corp., Daylight Community Development, and the Downtown Women's Center have worked on a variety of supportive housing developments across Los Angeles County. One such project is slated to rise next door to the Women's Center's Skid Row headquarters at 5th and San Pedro Streets in Downtown.
