Westlake Might Get New Affordable Housing At Alvarado And Valley Streets

166 South Alvarado St.

Westlake could get some new affordable housing, thanks to efforts by the Foundation for Affordable Housing.

The nonprofit is eyeing a 0.43-acre site at 166 South Alvarado St. for the project, which would be known as Hope on Alvarado.

It would include 90 studio and one-bedroom apartments, Urbanize LA reports.

According to a motion from LA City Council Member Mitch O'Farrell, the organization is requesting $20M in state bonds to buy the land and build the development.

A small medical office building that dates back to the 1940s now sits on the site.

It is not yet known what will happen to that Streamline Moderne building.
