The Beacon, Long Beach’s Latest Affordable Housing Complex, Begins to Take Shape

Release Date: 2018-08-06

It is one of the more progressive affordable housing projects in Long Beach: beautiful in design, centrally located near transit and Downtown while also neighboring the Senior Arts Colony, and catering to veterans and senior citizens.

The $80.4 million two-building Beacon project—a seven-story for Beacon Place and a five-story building for Beacon Pointe, both designed by the Architects Collective—is set to bring 160 units online, taking over the empty lot just east of the other affordable housing project, the Senior Arts Colony, at Anaheim and Long Beach Boulevard.

It includes 121 affordable senior units and 39 units for supportive housing.
