NEW DEVELOPMENTS

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.

Rose Apartments

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.

All units for this project will be matched through the Los Angeles County Coordinated Entry System (CES). Please reach out to St. Joseph Center or Safe Place for Youth for more information about the CES system.

LAX Suites

On March 28, 2022, Venice Community Housing received approval from the State of California to develop permanent supportive housing at LAX Suites, under the Project Homekey program.

Located at 11838 Aviation Blvd, in the Del Aire neighborhood of unincorporated LA County, LAX Suites will be renovated into a 48-unit permanent supportive housing development.   It will provide homes for 47 households experiencing homelessness and/or at risk of homelessness, and also have one onsite staff residential unit for a full-time Property Manager.   The property will also have comprehensive on-site services to support residents, provided by a trained, professional social service team.

Any current tenants living at LAX Suites will be able to maintain their tenancy if their income qualifies them for the extremely low-income targeting, and/or be provided full relocation benefits and supports.

Lincoln Apartments

Marian Place

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.

Marian Place is located at 2217 Marian Place. The project will include renovation of the existing bungalows and the construction of two 2-bedroom Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU’s). The project will consist of single and shared housing for families experiencing homelessness upon move in.
