Beverly Hills – At this evening’s City Council Meeting, the City of Beverly Hills voted to move forward with West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation (WHCHC), a nonprofit affordable housing developer, to begin the negotiation process to potentially develop a future 100% affordable senior housing project on a City-owned site at 9268-9298 W. 3rd Street.
With this Exclusive Negotiation Agreement (ENA) now approved by the City Council, conceptual plans and drawings will be presented to the public through a robust community outreach plan over the coming months.
“The Beverly Hills City Council has always been committed to providing affordable housing for our residents,” said Beverly Hills Mayor Dr. Julian Gold. “Sometimes it takes time to put these projects together and I am pleased we are able to move forward. While this is the first step, the Council is dedicated to providing more housing options for our community in the future.”
In April of 2022, the City solicited qualifications and conceptual proposals for a project on a City-owned site. After receiving 27 conceptual proposals and nearly a year of evaluation, a City Council subcommittee recommended both the project site and developer WHCHC to be selected.
The conceptual proposal submitted by WHCHC calls for 252 one-bedroom units, all with affordability requirements. The building is proposed to be six stories high with an additional usable rooftop level along with two levels of subterranean parking.
