My Angel, slated for a property at 8547-8549 N. Sepulveda Boulevard, will consist of a four-story building featuring 54 apartments - priced for low- and extremely low-income households - with on-site supportive services and a 20-car garage.
“When the 54 veterans and individuals who will be housed at My Angel are settled into their brand new apartments, all the angels involved in making this happen will surely get their wings,” said Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl in a statement. “My Angel will provide housing for people who honorably served this country and then had a long struggle with chronic homelessness. Apartment by apartment, building by building, we are expanding bridge and permanent housing for San Fernando Valley residents so that, with time, every person in the County will have a place to call home.”
GGA is designing the project, which will include two courtyards, a community garden, a rooftop deck, and other open-space amenities. Other members of the project team include United Building Company and AMJ Construction Management, Inc.
Completion of the roughly $31.8-million project is expected in late 2023.
The Daily News reports that the project will rise on the site of the former Angel Appliances store, which opened in 1955 and recently shut down.
