Noteworthy Affordable Housing

The Sierra Bonita Affordable Housing Project in West Hollywood is an example of a well designed housing project. This 50,000 square-foot building accommodates 42 units, along with several nonprofits at the street level.

Rivaling any luxury condo project but costing just $14 million for 42-units, the energy-efficient, mixed-use building has a courtyard garden, integrated photovoltaic panels that double as shade canopies for the building’s terraces, and a gorgeous laser-cut aluminum screen fa├žade.”
