Document Description
On February 28, 2019 the Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority (LAHSA) Commission authorized the Executive Director to enter into a lease with the JWCH Institute to lease tile San Julian Oasis property. The 0.34-acre Project site includes two parcels owned by the Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority (LAHSA), which are developed with a one-story building that is currently vacant but formerly operated as an Interim Shelter/Drop-In Center. The Project involves the renovation and expansion of the existing 7,686-sf building to provide Interim Housing in the form of a 45-bed Psychiatric Recuperative Care Center. The expanded building would add approximately 407 sf to the facility, for a total building size of 8,093 sf. The Care Center would provide on-site medical monitoring services, mental health, and case management services. The Project includes clinical exam space and counseling offices, intake/security lobby pavilion, gender-segregated sleeping and restroom areas, laundry room, warming kitchen, self-serve line counter and dining area, television area, library area, community room, treatment room, administration and office space, nurse's stations, and flexible conference space. Renovations would include upgrading of mechanical systems and HVAC, and retrofitting of plumbing and fixtures to meet applicable standards. The existing landscape and hardscape within the courtyard would be demolished. Renovating and limited expansion of the building into the courtyard would involve localized demolition and partition wall construction to reorganize interior spaces, create new openings for windows and/or hallways. There are no off-site improvements required. It is anticipated that the Care Center would include new exterior security lighting and signage on the Project site.
