Seven months after breaking ground in Harvard Heights, the wood frame of Hollywood Community Housing Corporation's Gramercy Place Apartments is rising on Washington Boulevard.


The $37-million project, which spans the block between Wilton Place and Gramercy Place, consists of a four-story building which will offer 64 one- and two-bedroom apartments atop 2,900 square feet of ground-floor retail space and parking for 63 vehicles.

Kevin Daly Architects designed the mixed-use project, which will be capped by a rooftop deck that steps down in height toward the adjacent low-rise neighborhood.

The apartments will cater to low-income seniors making at or below 50 and 60 percent of the area median income, with half to be reserved for formerly homeless persons.  Rents will range between $545 and $1,197 per month.

Completion of Gramercy Place is anticipated in 2021.

Hollywood Community Housing is also developing new developments in Historic South-Central, West Compton, and North Hills.
