A vacant lot located just east of San Pedro Street in Historic South-Central is up for redevelopment with permanent supportive housing, according to an application submitted earlier this month to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The proposed project from Holos Communities and Wellnest, slated for a property at 824 E. Jefferson Boulevard, would consist of a new five-story building featuring 55 apartments above community space at the ground floor. Plans call for 54 of those apartments to be used as permanent supportive housing for formerly unhoused residents, as well as on-site supportive services.

Holos and Wellnest are seeking entitlements using the administrative procedures created through the Mayor's Executive Directive 1.

QDG Architecture is designing the project, dubbed The Nest on Jefferson, which is portrayed in a rendering as a contemporary low-rise structure.

The project site is located a few blocks to the west of the Paul R. Williams Apartments and the Florence Mills Apartments, two similar affordable housing developments built by Hollywood Community Housing Corp.

Holos Communities, formerly Clifford Beers Housing, is developing affordable and permanent supportive housing at sites across Los Angeles County - notably a proposed high-rise in Long Beach and the Corazon del Valle apartments in Panorama City.

Wellnest, the other partner, has previously partnered on a similar project on Florence Avenue.
