EAGLE ROCK — More than four years after it was approved, a 55-unit affordable apartment housing project is now under construction in the 4200 block of Eagle Rock Boulevard.
The four-story Teague Terrace Apartments on the border of Eagle Rock and Glassell Park is one of the largest residential projects now under construction in the area. Non profit developer Women Organizing Resources Knowledge and Services will soon begin accepting rental applications for the furnished, single and one-bedroom apartments, which will be reserved for homeless persons with developmental disabilities and mental illness as well as homeless vets.
While zoning would have normally permitted only 18 residential units on the narrow lot, the developer won city approval to build a far larger development since the four-story building would house low-income tenants.
In addition to apartments, Teague Terrace will also contain a computer room and community rooms and on-site support staff.
