West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation (WHCHC) plans to develop Elden Elms, consisting of 93 low‐income units (including a manager's unit) for families making up to 60% of the area median income (AMI). There will be 48 one‐bedroom units, 15 two‐bedroom units, and 30 three‐bedroom units. 15 of the one‐bedroom units will be reserved for formerly‐homeless frequent users of the Los Angeles County Health System. The parking garage will contain 100 vehicular parking spaces plus 103 bike parking spaces.
Project amenities will include a community room with communal kitchen, an outdoor courtyard with play areas for children and passive recreational areas, a landscaped rear yard, a gym, and resident/social services offices. Each unit will come with a complete kitchen with Energy Star appliances including dishwashers, full bathroom, and private balcony. Elden Elms will be built to achieve LEED for Homes Gold certification. Sustainable features include exceeding Title 24 energy standards by 15%, energy star appliances, drought-tolerant and native plantings, low‐flow plumbing fixtures, no VOC interior paint, CRI green label carpeting, and formaldehyde‐free composite wood materials.
Elden Elms is currently entitled and has received funding commitments. Construction is planned to begin March 2019 and finish in 2021.
