Document Description
The project proposes to demolish the existing motel to construct 56 supportive housing units, including 12 studio units and 45 one-bedroom units. An on-site property manager will live a one-bedroom unit, bringing the total residential units to 57. The project will provide permanent housing to individuals who are chronically homeless earning at or below 60% of the Area Median Income. The project includes 24-hour on site management and dedicated office space for service providers. The project proposes a four story building with 36 residential units and a three story building with 21 residential units. A three story building with five truck under parking spaces and a street level lobby is located closest to 17th St and includes meeting space for temporary social workers, a leasing office, office space for service providers, and a community room and 30 parking spaces within an enclosed parking garage for residents. The design includes undulating buildings to buffer the site from the Santa Ana Freeway east of the site and create outdoor community spaces, a central courtyard and a community garden in the northwest area of the site. The buildings vary in height from 30 ft for the three story buildings to a max of 40 ft for the four story buildings.
