Description

NoHo Senior Villas is a senior community in the North Hollywood Arts District. The site is in close walking distance to the Metro Red Line subway, Metro Orange Line bus way, and a variety of restaurants, shops, and other amenities. NoHo Senior Villas is a beautiful, newly constructed five-story building designed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Platinum standards. The ground floor features a landscaped courtyard, a lobby, conference room and a community room furnished with a public kitchen, two computer stations, and a TV lounge. Offices are dedicated for on-site resident service coordinators, case managers and property management. The roof features a landscape deck, patio furniture, community edible garden, and a laundry room. The ground floor courtyard offers a shade tree, patio furniture and a fountain. An on-grade, gated and covered parking lot is located away from the street in the rear of the building and offers 24 regular and two handicapped parking spaces, as well as several bike racks.

This permanent supportive housing community of 49 apartments is completely ADA accessible, with four apartments designed for those with mobility, vision, or hearing impairments. All apartments are reserved for households with at least one member who is age 55 or older and whose incomes range from 25% to 60% of the area median income. 18 apartments are reserved for chronically homeless households living with mental illness. These 18 units are supported by an operating subsidy from the California Mental Health Services Act. PATH Ventures coordinates the provision of both on-site and off-site supportive services, and San Fernando Community Mental Health Center provides mental health services. The John Stewart Company provides on-site property management.
