HFL Sequoia Apartments

14402 Hamlin St. Van Nuys, CA 91401


HFL Sequoia Apartments is a new three-story apartment building for housing special needs residents located in the City of Van Nuys. This project includes 24 one-bedroom units for homeless and formerly homeless persons diagnosed with mental disorders. Parking is provided on-grade, with some stalls tucked-under the rear of the building. Designed to match the neighborhood’s Mediterranean architectural aesthetic, the building has rooftop terraces, shade trellises, built-in barbeque grill and counter, and raised planter gardens. Within a half mile radius of the property, there is a mixture of commercial, institutional and community services such as pharmacies, banks, Metro bus stops, churches, and markets. HFL Sequoia Apartments will help to revitalize the area by replacing a currently fenced off vacant parcel of land with affordable housing and neighborhood-specific services.

Unit Mix

25 units (24 one-bedroom units, 1 one-bedroom manager’s unit)
