In Pico-Union, a local real estate and construction firm's plans for a new affordable and permanent supportive housing complex continues to inch forward.
1228 Normandie, LP, an entity affiliated with Shangri-LA Construction, submitted plans to the City of Los Angeles in 2020 seeking approvals for the construction of a five-story building featuring 75 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments above a four-car garage.
Now, according to a notice of exemption just issued by the City, which indicates that the project will not be subject to further review under the California Environmental Quality Act. Per the notice, the roughly 39,000-square-foot building will offer 55 units of general low-income housing, as well as 19 units of very low-income supportive housing. The remaining apartment would be a market-rate manager's unit.
