SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- The Community Corporation of Santa Monica wants to replace a commercial building on 14th Street with low-income senior housing.
Plans call for the 15,000-square-foot site to have a three-story building with 39 affordable housing units.
The ground-floor will have a community room, laundry facility and library.
The exterior will feature fiber cement panels and plaster.
The plans also show a ground-level courtyard and rooftop deck.
The CCSM says the housing shortage in Santa Monica - as in much of Southern California - is at its most severe for low-income earners and seniors.
