Opened in 1998, The Palm View is owned by The Actors Fund and consists of three buildings surrounding a beautiful outdoor courtyard.
The development contains:

The facility totals 33,800 square feet, was designed by Killefer Flammang Purtill Architects and renovated by Ground Floor Design. It is managed by Levine Management Group, Inc., and most of the residents are entertainment professionals referred by The Actors Fund. The project is funded by The Actors Fund, the City of West Hollywood, the Los Angeles County Development Authority, Chase and Royal Bank of Canada, which together launched a $6.7 million renovation of the property in 2019–2020. The Actors Fund provides The Palm View with a full-time social worker who offers case management, referrals to local resources, short-term counseling and community-building activities.
Eligibility requirements for the apartments at The Palm View are based on a professional history in the arts, a diagnosis of a permanent disability (applicants must be receiving disability benefits), and annual income criteria established by the federal government. A small number of units are available to non-arts professionals. Household size for a one-bedroom apartment is 1–2 people, and occupancy for a two-bedroom apartment is 2–4 people.
The annual income to qualify as a Palm View resident is a maximum of $27,036 for one bedrooms, and $35,232 –$60,840 for two bedrooms. All residents of one-bedroom apartments, as well as one of the two-bedroom apartments, are eligible to apply to participate in the project-based voucher contract with the Los Angeles County Development Authority. Applicants may request an accessible unit by checking the appropriate box on the application or by making a verbal request to staff during the screening process if called for an interview.
