May 15Long Beach Senior
Mercy Housing California (MHC) is proposing to develop high-quality affordable apartment homes for low-income seniors and senior veterans who have experienced homelessness. The development, which is located at the corner of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue in Long Beach, will serve qualified seniors, 62 and older, and include amenities such as a large open space courtyard and recreation area, an indoor lounge and community space, onsite property management, Resident Services programming with dedicated staff to support seniors and senior veterans, and a community-serving space on the ground floor.
Integrated into the building design will be public art elements which reflect the rich history of the neighborhood. Neighbors and other community members will be invited to participate in a robust design process to develop the public art. Finally, the site is central to public transit, grocery stores, libraries, and public parks.
Long Beach Senior will provide 68 affordable apartments for low income seniors and senior veterans who have experienced homelessness, with construction expected to begin in 2021.
