Concrete and rebar are now rising from a long-vacant lot just north of the Reseda Theatre, the future site of a new senior affordable housing complex from Azure Development and Thomas Safran & Associates.

Canby Woods West, located at 7219-7227 N. Canby Avenue, will consist of a four-story building which will feature 26 one- and two-bedroom apartments reserved for low- and very low-income seniors.

The Spanish Colonial Revival development, designed by William Hezmalhalch Architects, will include on-site amenities such as a fitness center, a courtyard, and parking for six vehicles.

According to the Azure Development website, eligible residents for Canby Woods West will be selected through Los Angeles County's coordinated entry system.  On-site services will include case management, financial education, and transportation assistance.

More information will be made available via the Thomas Safran & Associates website.

The project, which would sit across the street from the Canby Woods senior apartments that were also built by Thomas Safran & Associates, is funded through a combination of state and local sources.

Construction of Canby Woods West will also be coordinated with the reactivation of the historic Reseda Theatre, a local landmark on Sherman Way.
