The grand opening of a 59-unit housing complex in Boyle Heights was celebrated March 13 as Councilmember Jose Huizar along with the Retirement Housing Foundation cut the ribbon to open its doors.

The nearly $24 million affordable housing apartment is called “The Whittier” and is the Foundation’s third community project in the Boyle Heights area.

“These are beautiful apartments, with many amenities, making for a safe, comfortable and family-friendly environment, which will surely be a source of pride for all who will soon call this home,” Huizar said in a press release.

The Whittier has received more than 1,400 applications in less than a month, according to Huizar’s office.

    This is great. Our community surely deserve it. Hope to soon see Mr Huizar cutting the ribbon for the NEW WYVERNWOOD. We are more than ready for this change. Thanks Mr. Huizar, I know you will soon approve this magnificent project.
