Long Beach Senior Arts Colony Apartments


Owner: Meta Housing Corporation
Architect: Studio One Eleven

This senior housing project is an affordable, transit oriented development adjacent to a Metro Blue Line station. AHBE designed the on-structure outdoor spaces to provide exterior amenities for the residents. The first phase of a larger development, the project provides the users access to communal courtyards, a separate community center, and artist studios. A dog park, vegetable gardens with built in seating, barbecue area, water elements, and outdoor fireplaces are used for recreation, therapy, and/or exercise. AHBE provided design services from schematic design through construction administration for planting and hardscape while coordinating drawings and documentation for the B permit process.
