Construction of Pointe on La Brea, a housing community by EAH Housing aimed at combating homelessness in Los Angeles has been announced. EAH is one of the biggest and most reputable nonprofit housing development and management organizations.

The Pointe on La Brea site is located at 849 N. It occupies an 11,260-square-foot piece of land that is close to the line separating Hollywood and West Hollywood. Moreover, the site is a former auto body shop. It will allow the development to blend in with the density and scale of the neighborhood.

Pointe on La Brea features a total of 50 units spread across five-storey buildings. 49 of the 50 will be income-restricted studio apartments. In addition, 25 of the 49 permanently affordable supportive housing units will be set aside for long-term homeless people. The 50th unit will be one apartment designated for the resident manager.
