Six months after breaking ground, vertical construction is complete for a $20.6-million permanent supportive housing complex in Venice. 


The project, which is being built by Venice Community Housing Corp., is rising from a property at 718 E. Rose Avenue, which was previously the non-profit developer's headquarters.  The new four-story building will feature 35 studio and one-bedroom apartments reserved for transition-aged youth and persons who have experienced chronic homelessness.

A 2019 staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee indicates that the project would offer monthly rents ranging between $548 and $913 per month.

The wood-frame structure, designed by Brooks + Scarpa, has a U-shaped footprint centered on a landscaped central courtyard.  The building is designed to include 17 parking spaces on its ground level, as well as space for service providers, and a 2,500-square-foot office for Venice Community Housing.

Besides the Rose Avenue Apartments, Venice Community Housing is developing two additional supportive housing projects in the surrounding community.

At 2467-2471 Lincoln Boulevard, the Venice Community Housing is partnering with the non-profit organization Safe Place for Youth on a similar 40-unit housing complex.

Next to the Venice Canals, the developer is working with Hollywood Community Housing Corp. on a proposed 140-unit complex which would replace public parking.
