Long-Delayed Killefer Flammang Fairfax Project Gets Going

New, 22 comments

Two years and three months after West Hollywood approved the demolition of a small office/former house on Fairfax to make way for senior housing, the project finally has finally broken ground, Patch reports. Friday marked the start of work for the Janet L. Witkin Center, a four-story building with 17 units and groundfloor offices for Alternative Living for the Ages (the nonprofit that owns the property and formerly inhabited the little house). Santa Monica-based Killefer Flammang designed the handsome structure, which is being built to Gold LEED standards (solar hot water heaters, recycled building materials, and permeable paving) and includes community rooms, a rooftop garden, bedrooms with oodles of natural light, a front-porch patio "directly linked to the street," and plenty of wayfinding features to help the old timers orient themselves in the building
