City Council Approves $850K for Hollywood Housing

The funds will help complete the LGBT Center’s Anita May Rosenstein Campus

Los Angeles -- City Council approved two Councilmember Ryu motions today to grant $850,000 in public funds for the construction of the LGBT Center’s Anita May Rosenstein Campus. Both measures, introduced by Councilmember Ryu, allow the campus to move forward with construction of affordable housing, homeless beds, and homelessness services in Hollywood.

“Without a doubt, the Anita May Rosenstein Campus will change lives,” Councilmember Ryu said. “This campus will mean 98 units for seniors, 25 units for youth, and 100 beds for homeless youth with services, staff and street improvements surrounding the center. I firmly believe that when completed, the Anita May Rosenstein Campus will be the pride of Hollywood.”

The Anita May Rosenstein Campus is expected to cost about $135 million, and provide 98 units of affordable housing for seniors, 25 units of affordable housing for youth, 60 beds for the transitional living program, 40 emergency overnight beds, as well as a commercial-grade kitchen, on-site parking, and a number of services and resources for individuals experiencing homelessness. It has received generous private support and public funding, including from Proposition HHH, $4.9 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding, and $50,000 from Councilmember Ryu’s discretionary funds.

The Anita May Rosenstein Campus is set to be completed on schedule in early 2019. It will include street infrastructure improvements on Santa Monica Boulevard, McCadden Place and Las Palmas Avenue.

“Building a large intergenerational housing campus isn’t always easy,” Councilmember Ryu said. “But you don’t change lives with ‘easy.’ It takes hard work and a clear focus to get housing like this built, and to make a real difference in solving homelessness in Hollywood and in the City of Los Angeles.”
