Immanuel Senior Housing with Clifford Beers Housing consists of the adaptive reuse of a church in Long Beach into 25 one-bedroom apartments for seniors and one, one-bedroom manager’s unit. The design complements the neighborhood by preserving the building’s rich, historical exterior façade. The project included building-out existing space into apartments on three levels, while preserving the ground-level sanctuary space as a community room with a kitchen and library. Amenities include a secured entry, a fitness room, laundry facilities and secure parking. Residents have access to senior services, such as adult education, health and wellness programs.

The apartment building was constructed to meet Build It Green’s Platinum GreenPoint Rated New Home Multifamily certification standards. Long Beach Vice Mayor Suja Lowenthal stated, “The Immanuel Senior Housing development will be a great addition to the community and supports our goals of neighborhood revitalization. The rehabilitation of this building will provide a quality, affordable living space for seniors with limited income, while also helping to make our community safer and more attractive.”

To accommodate parking, the project relocated a single-family home directly adjacent to the church site. All apartments are allocated for households with income below 30% to 60% of the area median income. 15 of the apartments are reserved for formerly homeless households that are high utilizers of the Los Angeles Department of Health Services. With the help of CBH, we will reach to lower the homelessness rates!
