Long Beach Senior Housing is a short walk to a Metro Blue Line station, shops and neighborhood services.  This infill project provides independent-living apartments for very low income seniors with HUD and redevelopment agency funding assistance.

The sloping, corner site facilitates access to a partially submerged garage under half the building. The C-shape plan provides a wide south-facing courtyard adjacent to a quiet side street. A story-and-a-half lobby/lounge, entered from the courtyard, engages ground and first floors, accessing social spaces including a multi-purpose room facing both streets, a library, computer room, kitchen, laundry, as well as offices and a manager’s apartment. The landscaped courtyard and patio decks on each level encourage outdoor living and social interaction.

All units are 540 sf, one-bedrooms with balconies and are disabled accessible and adaptable, with ten percent fully adapted to UFAS standards. Corridor colors aid way-finding.
