Last week, the City of Long Beach marked the completion of 26 Point 2, a new affordable and permanent supportive housing development from Excelerate Housing Group and Harbor Interfaith Services.

Located on a corner lot at 3590 E. Pacific Coast Highway, the new five-story building features 77 studio apartments, all designated for low-income households experiencing homelessness save for one manager's unit.

The apartments are reserved for households earning up to 30 percent of the area median income level, according to a 2023 staff report to the L.A. County Board of Supervisors.

Michael Maltzan Architecture designed the podium-type building, which includes a multi-purpose room with a kitchen and lounge, an outdoor courtyard, and offices for on-site service providers.

The $28-million development, which replaced a 1970s office building, is named for the distance of a marathon, referencing the saying that "Life Is A Marathon" requiring perseverance to overcome obstacles.
