Yet another needed facility featuring permanent supportive housing, this project focused on seniors as well as those formerly experiencing homelessness, has opened nearby. It was celebrated at the end of August by 10th District City Councilmember Mark Ridley-Thomas, with the participation of Mayor Eric Garcetti and the sponsors of the new facility, Hollywood Community Housing Corporation (HCHC).

Named the Gramercy Place Apartments, the project is between Gramercy Place and Wilton Place on Washington Boulevard. It opened to residents in May, and it provides 64 units of housing for seniors age 55 and over. Of the 64 units, 32 are available to low-income seniors who were formally unhoused. Residents have access to on-site case management, health and well-being management, vocational training and educational services throughout their tenancies.

At the opening event, Councilmember Ridley-Thomas said that “this project is a fulfillment of promises to some of our unhoused neighbors” … to provide “a place that they can call home. This project is a testament to what Measure HHH funds can do.”

HCHC explains that its mission is to transform communities by creating affordable housing that achieves design excellence and environmental sustainability, while at the same time respecting the history, culture, and architecture of the communities served. This property, designed by architect Kevin Daly, is equipped with solar panels and rooftop vegetable gardens.
