Veterans Affairs Campus to See 87 New Supportive Housing Units


Gensler

At the End of last month, construction began on two projects that will add 87 new apartments for homeless veterans to the expansive West Los Angeles VA North Campus. The Veterans Collective—comprising Century Housing Corp., Thomas Safran & Associates, and U.S. Vets—is leading the redevelopment of the campus, which already includes 230 completed homes and over 500 additional residential units currently under construction. Building 158, developed by Century Housing, will contribute 49 homes to the complex, while Building 210, developed by U.S. Vets, will offer 38 new apartments specifically for women veterans.


“Today’s groundbreaking of Buildings 158 and 210 signifies the increased momentum in development of housing and helps solidify the ongoing transformation of the West LA VA campus for those who have previously served our country,” said U.S. Vets chief executive officer Steve Peck in a news release. “The work continues and once completed, these buildings will be the latest to provide housing options for our highest-need populations experiencing or at-risk of homelessness, including women Veterans, a historically underserved population within the Veteran community.”


The design team for the project includes KFA Architecture, City Fabrick, and Gensler. The buildings will feature the Mission Revival architecture common to the campus.

Funding for the projects comes from various state and local sources, as well as leases and infrastructure provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs, which owns the campus, and philanthropic contributions.


The full redevelopment of the 80-acre VA North Campus will ultimately create a total of 1,200 homes and provide wraparound services for residents. The project is set to be the largest veteran housing development in the United States, with an estimated total cost exceeding $1.4 billion.
