Palo Verde Apartments, developed by Hollywood Community Housing — a nonprofit affordable housing developer and service provider—features 49 units, 25 designated for homeless veterans and 23 designated for low-income families, and one unit for the on-site manager. During the lease process, the property managers received over 2,000 pre-applications for the income qualified units, reflecting the dire need of affordable units. A lottery system was established to determine the order of interviews to determine eligibility.

The newly constructed housing development is designed to meet the Platinum LEED-certification, the highest level of distinction awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council. The units are available in one, two and three bedrooms and also feature Energy Star appliances, such as refrigerators, stoves, ranges, dishwashers and solar panels to heat water. In addition, residents will be able to enjoy features such as community rooms, a computer lab, laundry rooms and a landscaped courtyard with fruit trees and gardening space.

The opening of Palo Verde is a reflection of the City’s commitment to address the increase of homelessness in the San Gabriel Valley
