The $29.7-million project, located at the southwest corner of 120th and Main Streets, consists of a five-story building which will feature 56 studio and one-bedroom apartments reserved for formerly homeless persons earning 30 percent or less than the area median income.
According to a 2019 staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, rents for the apartments at Dahlia will start at $548 per month.
Togawa Smith Martin is designing the development, which uses stepped building heights along its southern property line to provide an amenity deck - as well as a transition to the adjoining residential neighborhood. Other planned features include a laundry facility, a community room, and offices for on-site supportive services, which will be provided by Homeless Health Care LA.
Affirmed Housing is developing a handful of similar developments in the Los Angeles area, including projects now under construction in Westlake and East Hollywood, as well as proposed complexes in Chatsworth, Sawtelle, and Westmont.
The project site is located less than a mile south of the intersection of Imperial Highway and Broadway, where Clifford Beers Housing recently broke ground on a similar permanent supportive housing complex.
