88-unit affordable-housing development closer to construction in Central Long Beach

An 88-unit affordable-housing development at the southwest corner of Anaheim Street and Walnut Avenue faced the Planning Commission Thursday night where it garnered approval to move to City Council for a final vote.

The site is home to multiple former Redevelopment lots that are split-zoned, meaning two different zones split the seven lots. Because of that, the units’ developer, affordable housing organization Bridge Housing, sought to have some amendments made in order to move forward with the project.

The five-story structure will feature 18 one-bedroom units, 41 two-bedroom units and 29 three-bedroom units. Along with this, a three-story, 96-stall parking garage will be included.

The project’s proposed amendments have been forwarded to the City Council.
