    Construction is Underway at West Hollywood Holloway Motel Interim Housing

    - Advertisement -

    Construction is well underway at the West Hollywood Holloway Motel property located at 8465 Santa Monica Boulevard. Photos show construction vehicles hard at work Wednesday afternoon demolition is well underway inside the Motel and looks completely gutted. This update brings the project closer to serve the community as the Holloway Interim Housing Program.

    The City of West Hollywood acquired the Holloway Motel property on April 12, 2023. The Holloway Interim Housing Program will provide a safe, supportive space for people experiencing homelessness to stay 90 days, giving residents support and time to transition off the streets and into housing. The property will be managed and operated through a partnership with Ascencia, a nonprofit homeless services agency, who will provide comprehensive case management and supportive services, and uphold safety for program participants.

    In June 2022, the City received a State of California Housing and Community Development Homekey grant in the amount of $6,007,661, and the West Hollywood City Council unanimously approved the purchase of the property to be converted into an interim housing program. The Holloway Interim Housing Program will be funded through state and regional resources that are matched by the City’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund.

    By purchasing the Holloway Motel, and converting it into interim housing, the City will make significant progress on the goals of its Homeless Initiative, created in 2016, and double the City’s available interim housing beds for adults in an expedient and cost-effective manner. The Holloway Interim Housing Program builds on more than 30 years of City efforts to partner with local agencies to provide social services to community members experiencing homelessness. It is designed to be responsive to the unique needs of its community members, drawing on the City’s proud history of inclusivity and empathy in service delivery.

    The City of West Hollywood is committed to providing comprehensive assistance to people experiencing homelessness and addressing the needs of its diverse community. The City’s Homeless Initiative addresses homelessness with a multi-disciplinary, multi-agency, collaborative response, working in close partnership with nonprofit social services providers, the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, and Los Angeles County agencies.

    To report concerns about a community member who is homeless, call the West Hollywood Homeless Initiative Concern Line at (323) 848-6590. If the concern requires time-sensitive assistance during nights or weekends, please call the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station at (310) 855-8850.

    This is a slap in the face to hard-working West Hollywood residents and taxpayers. Bringing 240 more dangerous and disturbed people to our neighborhood every year–and making us pay for it.

    Fascinating how LA County cities, LA City, and especially the small cities in the county, have so much corruption and so many former officials doing time.
