A Los Angeles-based foundation providing medical care for HIV patients downsized the density of its proposed apartment development in Fort Lauderdale for low-income people.

AIDS Healthcare Foundation reduced to 500 from 680 the number of apartments in its planned 15-story building at 700 Southeast Fourth Avenue, according to a new site plan filed with the city.

The largest apartments would be 411 square feet, and most would measure 263 square feet, less than an average hotel room.

Most of the city commissioners had opposed the denser, 680-unit project that AIDS Healthcare originally proposed – which hit resistance from some nearby homeowners, including residents of Rio Vista.

The downsized multifamily development by AIDS Healthcare would have 277,282 square feet of interior space, down from the originally proposed 345,000 square feet.

New renderings show a four-level station for emergency medical services has been added to the building design. AIDS Healthcare Foundation is a global non-profit provider of medical care for HIV patients plus HIV testing and prevention services.

Despite its reduced number of units, the foundation’s Fort Lauderdale apartment development remains designated for low-income residents, Michael Kahane, the southern region bureau of AIDS Healthcare Foundation, told the Sun-Sentinel.

“We look forward to bringing a dignified low-income option into the market,” he said by email. [Sun-Sentinel]Mike Seemuth
