MEDIA ADVISORY: LINC Housing Starts Construction of 95 New Apartments in Long Beach for Formerly Homeless Households and Low-Income Families
Date:3/14/2019

When:    Wednesday, March 20 - 3 p.m.

Where: Future site of The Spark at Midtown - 1900 Long Beach Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90806

What:    Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn and Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia join LINC Housing, county and city officials, and other partners to celebrate the start of construction of The Spark at Midtown, a 95-unit affordable housing community for low-income families and people who have experienced homelessness.

The Spark at Midtown will be one of the first developments under Long Beach’s Midtown Specific Plan and will ignite the Midtown area into a thriving and livable community, promoting healthy living, education and opportunity, neighborhood engagement, and connectivity. Half of the 95 homes are for individuals and families that have been homeless. The other half will serve families earning up to 60% of area median income.

The new community will feature 47 one-bedroom, 23 two-bedroom and 25 three-bedroom homes. Community areas include multi-purpose spaces to house a variety of resident programs as well as private meeting rooms for service providers and case managers. Additional amenities include, a community room with computer lab, a community garden, and bike amenities. Partnerships with the Los Angeles County of Department Health Services will allow LINC to serve the 47 formerly homeless households with intensive case management services, while all future residents will have access to life-enhancing services through LINC Cares. The ground floor space will house the YMCA of Greater Long Beach Youth Institute program, the Mental Health America of Los Angeles café for workforce training, and a Dignity Health St. Mary Medical Center health clinic.

The Spark was designed in collaboration with City Fabrick, D33 Design & Planning, and WHA Architects. The contractor is Walton Construction Services. The $52.6-million development is due to be completed in late 2020.
