The wood-and-concrete frame of a new supportive housing complex is coming together just west of Metro's PCH Station in Midtown Long Beach.

The project, called Vistas del Puerto, is being developed by Clifford Beers Housing.  The five-story structure at 1836-1852 Locust Avenue will feature 48 apartments and supportive services, catering to formerly homeless individuals and families earning between 30 and 50 percent of the area median income.


The contemporary low-rise structure, designed by KFA Architecture, has a U-shaped footprint surrounding a central staircase.

Completion of the $26.5-million development is anticipated later this year.

Vistas del Puerto is one of three affordable and supportive housing projects now in construction near PCH Station, joining the Spark at Midtown and the Las Ventanas apartments.

North Hollywood-based Clifford Beers is also developing supportive housing in South Los AngelesHarvard HeightsPanorama City, and Sylmar.
