In North Hollywood, non-profit developers Abbey Road and Linc Housing recently completed construction of Sun Commons, a new affordable and permanent supportive housing complex located just off of Victory Boulevard.
The new four-story building, located on an amorphous site at 6329 Clybourn Street, features 103 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, nearly all of which are reserved for formerly unhoused persons, as well as families and individuals earning between 30 and 60 percent of the area median income level.
KFA Architecture designed the low-rise complex, which has a V-shaped footprint and a contemporary exterior. In addition to housing, Sun Commons includes community rooms, rooftop decks, a children's play area, and a community garden. Additionally, the building features on-site case management and supportive services.
The project, which had an estimated $60-million price tag at the time of a 2020 staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, was funded by sources including Measure HHH, Measure H, and Los Angeles County general funds.
Abbey Road, one of the co-developers, is behind a proposal for a similar affordable housing project at a property it owns in the North Hills community.
Linc Housing, the other developer is one of the region's most prolific builders of income-restricted and supportive housing. Its under-construction projects include a 340-unit complex now taking shape in Glendale.
