More Affordable Housing to Open Soon at Anaheim & Walnut in Long Beach, Calif.
Construction is underway on a new mixed-use, multi-generational property by BRIDGE Housing located in the Central Long Beach Redevelopment Project Area. As a key trade partner, 20/20 Plumbing & Heating, Inc. is excited to be playing a role in the ongoing construction of the project. The project, known as Anaheim & Walnut, will provide a total of 88 affordable one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Most units will be for families earning 30-60% of Area Median Income, while a total of 20 apartments will be set aside as permanent supportive housing for formerly homeless seniors. Located in the heart of Long Beach’s Cambodia Town neighborhood, construction is anticipated to be complete by late summer 2023.
In addition to comfortable, contemporary housing, the project’s design includes a beautiful, landscaped roof terrace for resident families to enjoy. Developed in partnership with TCC Family Health (TCC), an 18,000 sq. ft. Children’s Clinic Family Health and Wellness Center will occupy the ground floor. Further, Mental Health America Los Angeles and the YMCA of Greater Long Beach will provide resident services. A 3,000-sq. ft. restaurant/café will also occupy the site, along with above-grade parking for clinic staff, clients and residents.
