There are a number of new construction projects underway or in the planning stages around Paramount, often replacing aging and blighted structures. For instance, a senior housing project at 16635-83 Paramount Boulevard will feature a three-story, mixed-use building with parking on the first floor and senior assisted- and independent-living housing on the second and third floors. It will take over the block now occupied by a church, mechanic, and a bar, all closed.
