Development of senior housing in today's market requires an entirely different approach than that of generations past. As Americans continue to live longer, healthier lives, there is growing demand for housing options that deliver opportunities to increase longevity and sustain good health. The Long Beach Senior Arts Colony, a new 200 unit multifamily property, is demonstrative of this fresh approach. The community, which is the newest "senior arts colony" Cobalt has constructed for Meta, delivers a fully arts focused lifestyle to seniors aged 55+. The Colony features a mix of studio, one and two bedroom units ranging from 456 to 1075 square feet. Prior to its completion, the community was already in high demand, and today the project maintains a 100 percent occupancy rate. Driving the demand is the project's beautifully appointed apartments, as well as the thoughtful, artistic spaces. The Long Beach Senior Arts Colony features extensive arts amenities including art studios and an art gallery, as well as a 99 seat performance theatre.
