A project for the construction of proposed new senior supportive housing in Cudahy, a city in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, United States, is set to move forward after the board of supervisors of the Los Angeles County, approved a US$ 10M grant to the developer, Prima Development.
This cash will come from the Fourth Supervisorial District’s Community Programs budget, and it will be combined with a separate $800,000 allocation to pay administrative expenditures at the L.A. County Development Authority.
Incorporating inexpensive and permanent supportive housing for seniors, the 140-unit apartment complex will be developed on vacant 1.34-acre land at 4610 Santa Ana Street. Cudahy officials authorized the proposal in 2020, and it is envisioned as a five-story structure with a mix of one- and two-bedroom homes, 20,000 square feet of commercial uses at street level, and semi-subterranean parking for 190 automobiles.
Remarks on the new senior supportive housing in Cudahy
“The proposed development is intended to be a significant mixed-use development that offers a one-stop housing and wellness solution for low-income and homeless seniors, as well as an array of on-site health services and economic development opportunities accessible to the surrounding community, such as job creation and education and training programs.
The Project will provide community health and wellness services such as intensive care management and supportive services, on-site healthcare amenities such as a community health clinic with comprehensive medical, dental, and behavioral health services, and elderly care services to enhance the residential development “Supervisor Janice Hahn writes in a motion to allocate funding.
More on the Cudahy senior supportive housing project
Hahn’s motion describes the initiative as a method to improve health and wellness results in Cudahy, which is the state’s second-most densely populated city but also has one of the lowest median family income levels.
The Prima Development project might be a portent of things to come for the working-class community since other County-owned lands at the intersection of Santa Ana Street and Atlantic Avenue are also slated for redevelopment.
