Councilman Curren Price was joined on Dec. 14 by Mayor Eric Garcetti, Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, and other VIPs, as they broke ground on the $32 million affordable housing Rise apartments along Figueroa.
This much-anticipated project will bring 56 permanent supportive housing units for homeless veterans and homeless individuals. To date, Councilman Price has authorized the construction of nearly 500 units of permanent supportive housing in the Ninth District alone!
"The groundbreaking for the Rise apartments was yet another giant step in the City's effort to eliminate homelessness and ensure our most vulnerable people have a shot at living a life of dignity and respect," added Councilman Price. "RISE apartments offer hope, opportunities and new beginnings; and the fortunate individuals that will one day call RISE their home can and will prosper!"
This latest project complements about 1,000 units of affordable housing units in CD 9 that are currently in the pipeline.
