Venice Community Housing is currently developing four (4) new projects. Three of the projects will be 100% supportive units to serve those who are experiencing homelessness upon move in. One project will be a mix of affordable and supportive units.
Venice Community Housing is under construction 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
Venice Community Housing and Hollywood Community Housing, with Eric Owen Moss Architects, are working to obtain City approvals for 140 new homes on the City-owned parking lot between North and South Venice Blvd, and Pacific and Dell Avenues. This proposed development, named after Venice leaders Arthur Reese and Rick Davidson, will provide both affordable and supportive housing, live-in property management staff, an on-site social services team, open space, micro-enterprise/small scale retail, and the new and exciting Gregory Hines Community Arts Center.

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.
