From the Los Angeles Daily News:
"Los Angeles officials celebrated the groundbreaking for the affordable housing project dubbed Corazón del Valle — ” heart of the valley” — on Thursday, April 21.
The sustainable, high-density complex — focused on providing homes for those who have battled homelessness, as well as low-income residents — will be located on Lanark Street in Panorama City.
The first half of the project will include 90 apartments — including one-, two-, and three-bedroom dwellings — plus commercial properties.
The housing is intended for households that have experienced homelessness, single residents earning $12,400 or less annually or families earning no more than $70,000 each year.
Clifford Beers Housing will build the complex, designed by Perkins & Will. The first phase is expected to be completed next year; a completion date for a second wave, featuring another 90 units, has not yet been announced.
“Corazón del Valle is our seventh project with Clifford Beers Housing and represents our commitment to collaboration to bring much needed affordable and supportive housing across the County,” said Los Angeles County Development Authority Executive Director Emilio Salas. “The LACDA is proud to be a part of a project that includes positive community additions like health services, green spaces and environmentally sustainable housing.”
