Over a half-year since our last update in Midtown Long Beach, wood framing is now complete for Meta Housing Corp.'s new affordable housing complex just south of the A Line's Willow Station.

Located at 2400 Long Beach Boulevard, the project replaced a school bus depot storage lot with a new five-story building which will contain 194 apartments above 5,622 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

Per a December 2021 staff report to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, the apartments will include a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans, with rents set for households earning between 30 and 70 percent of the area median income level.

The Architects Collective is designing the contemporary low-rise structure, which would be centered on an open courtyard amenity space.

The project joins a handful of similar affordable and supportive housing developments that have recently been built along the A Line's right-of-way on Long Beach Boulevard, such as the Vistas del Puerto apartments, which opened not far south in 2022 near PCH Station.

Meta Housing's other ongoing projects are located in Los Angeles communities such as Westlake and Koreatown.
