Jamboree Housing Corp. has announced the start of construction for a new supportive housing development in Anaheim.

The project, located at 2691 W. La Palma Avenue, will transform a former motel into 69 studio apartments serving veterans, individuals living with mental illness, and formerly homeless persons.  Plans also call for on-site supportive services.

Y&M Architects is designing the adaptive reuse project, which will turn the nondescript two-story structure into a Spanish-style building with new landscaping and an outdoor courtyard.  Architectural plans show a cement plaster exterior and a clay tile roof.

The $25.3-million development is being funded through a combination of traditional financing, tax credit equity, and loans from both the City of Anaheim and Orange County.

The Orange County Register reports that the per-unit cost for the housing complex is $230,504.  Monthly rent at the property could be as low as $283.

The La Palma project will be the first supportive housing complex built using the City of Anaheim's motel conversion ordinance, which was adopted in 2019.
