Scaffolding just went up on the frontages of the 1913 Van Nuys building, at 7th & Spring.

Construction scaffolding just went up on the Spring and 7th street sides of the Van Nuys building, signaling the start of work on a $42 million renovation. The 1913 building is home to 299 units of senior housing, converted in 1982.

AIMCO, a national REIT, owns the building and is conducting the renovation, the first at the Van Nuys since its conversion.

Work on the project will be led by historic preservation specialists CK Arts. Their biggest challenge: rehabbing the building's original 1913 windows.
