Two years after breaking ground in Pico-Robertson, Mercy Housing of California is entering the home stretch at a new apartment complex for low-income seniors at 8862 W. Pico Boulevard.

The six-story building, which replaced a City-owned parking lot, contains a total of 48 studio and one-bedroom apartments above 68 parking spaces for residents and adjacent businesses.

KFA Architecture designed the apartment complex, which includes a third-story courtyard surrounding by a community room, an exercise room, and supportive services offices.  Additional open spaces include a rooftop deck and small terraces.

According to the Mercy Housing website, the property will serve both low-income seniors and homeless senior veterans.

The project's application period is open through June 26, with an anticipated opening date scheduled for July.

Mercy Housing's other Los Angeles area developments include senior affordable housing projects slated for Sherman Oaks and Downtown.
