A long-vacant lot at the intersection of Pico and Crenshaw Boulevards may be developed with senior housing, according to the most recent agenda of the Mid-City Neighborhood Council's Planning & Land Use Management Committee.

The 12,600-square-foot site, located at 4200 Pico Boulevard, is slated for the construction of a five-story, 55-unit supportive housing project.  The low-rise structure would also provide on-site medical and social services to a population of residents aged 55 and older.

The agenda indicates that Wakeland Housing and Development Corporation is behind the project.  The San Diego-based firm specializes in affordable housing development throughout California.

The proposed development at Pico and Crenshaw has not been formally filed with the Departments of City Planning or Building and Safety for formal review at this point in time.
