Venice Community Housing's New Developments

Lincoln Apartments

Venice Community Housing is planning to build Lincoln Apartments at 2469-2471 Lincoln Boulevard, Venice, CA 90291. VCH will create 40 new units of much-needed affordable, supportive housing including studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms. Preliminary plans include open space and the preservation of important community services of Safe Place for Youth (SPY) on the ground floor. Lincoln Apartments will help continue to address the overwhelming need for supportive housing for people who are chronically houseless, especially in Venice and throughout the Westside of Los Angeles, one of the regions most undeserved by affordable and supportive housing development. Providing housing and supportive services to persons who are most vulnerable helps establish and maintain stability and health, reduce costs for emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and jail stays, and contribute to the overall inclusive and equitable development of the neighborhood.

VCH has a calendar of public hearings in February through April that will take us to final approval for 40 new units at Lincoln Apartments:

  • Neighborhood Council’s Land Use and Planning Committee (LUPC) hearing: Thursday, Feb 20th, 6:30 pm — Westminster Elementary, 1010 Abbot Kinney Boulevard, Venice, CA 90291
  • City of LA’s Zoning Administrator/staff hearing: Monday, March 16th, 9:30am — City Hall (No decisions are made at this hearing, it’s public testimony only)
  • Venice Neighborhood Council meeting: Tuesday, March 17th at 7:00 pm — Westminster Elementary.
  • City Planning Commission Hearing and final vote to approve the project (not including appeals):Thursday, April 23rd at 8:30 am — Van Nuys City Hall.

Rose Avenue Apartments

Venice Community Housing is planning to redevelop its current administrative offices into Rose Avenue Apartments!
Located at 718-720 Rose Avenue at the intersection of Lincoln Blvd. and Rose Ave., VCH will provide permanent supportive housing for 34 formerly homeless households- 50% for transitional aged youth, 50% for those who have experienced chronic homelessness and one unit for a resident manager.

Rose Apartments will help VCH continue to address the overwhelming need for permanent supportive housing for people who are experiencing homelessness or chronic homelessness, especially for those on the Westside of LA, one of the regions most under-served by permanent supportive housing development. VCH believes that providing housing and supportive services to those who are most vulnerable helps establish and maintain stability and health, reduces costs for ER visits, hospitalizations, and jail stays, and contributes to the overall inclusive and equitable development of the neighborhood.

This project is being designed by architecture firm Brooks + Scarpa.

Reese Davidson Community (At the Venice-Dell-Pacific parking lots)

In December of 2016, the LA City Council approved the development team of Venice Community Housing, Hollywood Community Housing Corporation and Eric Owen Moss Architects to start a community engagement process on the potential development of affordable and permanent supportive housing on the city-owned parking lots between North and South Venice- Dell Ave.- and Pacific Ave. VCH is still in design process but will update the mailing list and the VCH website when the final plans are submitted to the City.
