Berendo Sage, located on a previously-vacant city-owned site just south of Olympic Boulevard, consists of a six-story building that will feature 42 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments upon completion. Plans call for a mix of permanent supportive housing and general income-restricted apartments.

According to a staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, the approximately $26.3-million project will offer rents ranging between $548 and $1,357 per month.

Designed by Urban Architecture Lab, Berendo Sage is portrayed in renderings as a contemporary podium-type building which places its vertical circulation areas along its exterior to preserve more space for housing.  The project is expected to include a rooftop community room, a laundry facility, and offices for on-site service providers.

Funding for Berendo Sage comes from a variety of sources, including tax credit financing and a more than $6-million allocation through Proposition HHH.
