Building plans to construct a controversial homeless shelter in Glendale are moving ahead.
The Department of Buildings approved permits on Tuesday for the conversion of a vacant factory building into transitional housing, which the community has repeatedly opposed for years.
The dilapidated factory will have 103 units, smaller than the 125-room shelter originally proposed, encompassing 74,542 square feet of residential space, according to the filings with the Buildings Department. The four-story building will also be built with parking spaces for 33 vehicles, per plans.
In the meantime, the City found that currently operating homeless shelters are full of rats, insects and other wonderful violations.
