EAH Housing will soon complete construction of a new building at 1445 and 1453 10th Street that will provide 39 one-bedroom apartments for seniors in Santa Monica. The development received an $11.4 million investment from the City of Santa Monica and will provide affordable apartments across a mix of low-income levels.
“We are thrilled that the second senior affordable housing community to open within the last year will soon provide essential housing to Santa Monicans in a setting where they can age in place,” said Community Services Director Andy Agle. “We are committed to supporting the creation of affordable housing to keep our long-term residents in the community they love. We encourage all low-income seniors to apply.”
This new building will feature private balconies for each apartment, more than 2,000 square feet of courtyard open space, a community garden, programming offices and community room, onsite laundry, and close proximity to medical offices, the Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica State Beach, and the Third Street Promenade.
To be eligible, applicants must be 62 years of age or older with an annual income between $16,885 and $49,680 for a one-person household, $16,885 and $56,760 for a two-person household, and $16,885 and $63,840 for a three-person household.
Applicants who live or work in Santa Monica will receive priority on the waitlist. There is no minimum income for households with a Section 8 housing voucher. Voucher holders will need to apply via the Below Market Housing program.
Applications are online only and will remain open and ongoing. For more information and to apply online, visit santamonica.gov/housing-magnoliavillas.
