Long Beach, California – Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia on Wednesday said that the city of Long Beach remains dedicated and committed to creating housing for all Long Beach residents during a groundbreaking ceremony for a new affordable housing project in the morning hours. The housing project for veterans will be built with help from the city of Long Beach, the non-profit Century Affordable Development, Inc. (Century), and other groups.
According to multiple sources, the project called The Cove will offer 89 affordable studios for veterans who have very low-income, earning 30-60% of area median income, and veterans who are experiencing homelessness. The four-story building will be located at the 27-acre Century Villages at Cabrillo community in West Long Beach at 2121 W. Williams St.
The project is expected to be completely finished by the end of next year. The modern building will have everything veterans might need in their everyday lives. Community room, bicycle storage, courtyard, lobby for visitors, computer area, study area and a common space area are some of the things that will be featured.
Affordable community housing remains one of the top priorities for the city of Long Beach. Since early 2020, a total of 880 units have been built or are under construction in the area.
