Latest Updates - February 2024

The City's contractor began construction in August 2023 and is scheduled to be completed, barring weather or other unforeseen delays, by Summer 2024.

In Early 2024, the contractor will begin renovations to the lobby, caseworkers' office, and other 1st floor areas, along with continuing the construction of an outdoor community space at the former pool area.

The contractor is scheduled to perform work Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Parking impacts for residents are not expected. Efforts will be made to minimize inconveniences and minimize construction activities.

Project Information

The Homekey at 1725 Long Beach Blvd Project renovates the former Best Western hotel and converts the facility to provide interim housing for people experiencing homelessness. This project is a part of the State's Project Homekey Program to provide municipalities funding to expand temporary housing for people experiencing homelessness by purchasing and rehabilitating existing properties, such as hotels, motels, vacant apartment buildings, and more.

Improvements include renovations to the lobby, building corridors, and existing spaces to create a community pantry and resident lounge areas, along with security upgrades throughout the facility. The 1st floor areas will be enhanced to accommodate facility operations and select rooms on the 2nd floor will be converted to provide a residents' lounge and additional staff working space. The existing pool will also be removed to permit construction of an outdoor space for residents
