87th & Western, is a 160-unit, mixed-use, affordable housing development located in the Westmont neighborhood of Los Angeles. The majority of the units will be rented to people earning 30% to 60% AMI. Fifty of the units will consist of Supportive Housing wherein an array of onsite services will be delivered to tenants residing in those units. Approximately 6,800 sf of the ground floor will be reserved for community serving retail space.
