Long Beach Senior Arts Colony
(# 125)
Images Description Credits
The Senior Arts Colony (SAC) is a 200-unit senior affordable housing community which marks the northern gateway into downtown Long Beach.  Following completion, the SAC has become a catalyst for revitalizing the surrounding neighborhood. Several market-rate, mixed-use projects have begun construction nearby and the City has released a program to assist in renovating neighboring commercial storefronts.  In addition, SAC residents have become community stakeholders, successfully petitioning the City to improve a park one block away. Considered a Transit Oriented Development, the project is located immediately adjacent to light rail and bus transit stops that provide access to educational, medical, retail and employment centers.

The design, amenities, and programs of the SAC are geared toward active, income-qualified seniors aged 55 years and over with a passion for the arts.  The community promotes “healthy aging” emphasizing creativity, wellness, lifelong learning, and independence.
