Building for homeless seniors approved


Mercy Housing California has received permission to build an affordable apartment project in Sherman Oaks.

According to the Los Angeles Daily News the 54-unit will be built on Burbank Boulevard near the corner of Van Nuys Boulevard.

The paper reports that funding was “secured $11.8 million from Proposition HHH, a $1.2 billion bond measure for supportive housing. The project is expected to cost about $26 million to build, with construction anticipated to begin in 2020.”

It also writes that earlier attempts to build a permanent supportive housing complex were met with opposition but that eventually public outreach campaigns to promote the need for such a facility were successful.

The developer of the project is coUrbanize.
