Renderings for a new affordable housing complex at the Villages at Cabrillo have been unveiled as the complex—dubbed the Cabrillo Gateway Apartments—celebrated a ground breaking ceremony on February 24.
The project, led by project management firm S.L. Leonard & Associates Inc. (SLLA), also unveiled another affordable housing complex with a ribbon cutting following the firm’s completion of the $13M Vista del Rio Apartments in Santa Ana.
“There is a great need for quality affordable housing in these communities and both projects address areas of special need,” said Sean Leonard, President of SLLA. “Vista del Rio adds much-needed housing for people with disabilities, while Cabrillo Gateway enables small families taking part in the Long Beach Housing Authority’s rent-subsidy program to have a home.”
The 80-unit Cabrillo complex—specifically geared towards small households—harkens to the work of Studio 111 did at the senior housing complex near Long Beach Boulevard and Anaheim Street: bold but natural colors, textured surfacing to provide depth, and an array of community space.
The Cabrillo Gateway Apartments will have its reconstruction and construction management through SLLA, its fourth project at the Villages. SLLA has been involved with the Villages since 2010, helping implement the sector’s Master Plan that revolved around the 26-acres of land it occupies in the West Side.
Additionally, The Children’s Clinic will operate a federally qualified health clinic that will serve the residents on the ground floor.
